I've attached the code snippets below

At the moment I'm displaying
Merchant | Product        | Request Type        | Success | Failure
22            | PRODUCT1 | CANCEL_CARD    | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT1 | REQUEST_CARD | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | CANCEL_CARD    | 6             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | CANCEL_CARD    | 0             |     2 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | LOAD_CARD         | 1             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | REQUEST_CARD | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT3 | CANCEL_CARD    | 8             |    0 |
22            | PRODUCT3 | REQUEST_CARD | 10           |    0 |

Where as I really want the successes and failures on the same row:
Merchant | Product        | Request Type        | Success | Failure
22            | PRODUCT1 | CANCEL_CARD    | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT1 | REQUEST_CARD | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | CANCEL_CARD    | 6             |    2 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | LOAD_CARD         | 1             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT2 | REQUEST_CARD | 8             |     0 |
22            | PRODUCT3 | CANCEL_CARD    | 8             |    0 |
22            | PRODUCT3 | REQUEST_CARD | 10           |    0 |

#=========== snippet from request.rb ======================
    def self.search_traffic( from, to, request_type, merchant, page )
        conditions = self.create_conditions(from, to, request_type, merchant)
 
        Request.paginate_by_sql(["
            select merchant, product, requestType, '0' rss, count(*) total 
            from rb_request 
            where " + conditions + "
                 responseStatusCode=0
            group by merchant, product, requestType
 
            union
 
            select merchant, product, requestType, '1' rss, count(*) total 
            from rb_request 
            where " + conditions + " 
                  responseStatusCode <> 0
            group by merchant, product, requestType
 
            order by merchant, product, requestType, rss
        "], :page => page, :per_page => 10)
 
    end
 
#The above returns something that looks like in mySQL:
+----------+----------+--------------+-----+-------+
| merchant | product  | requestType  | rss | total |
+----------+----------+--------------+-----+-------+
|       22 | PRODUCT1 | CANCEL_CARD  | 0   |     8 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT1 | REQUEST_CARD | 0   |     8 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT2 | CANCEL_CARD  | 0   |     6 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT2 | CANCEL_CARD  | 1   |     2 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT2 | LOAD_CARD    | 0   |     1 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT2 | REQUEST_CARD | 0   |     8 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT3 | CANCEL_CARD  | 0   |     8 | 
|       22 | PRODUCT3 | REQUEST_CARD | 0   |    10 | 
+----------+----------+--------------+-----+-------+
The rss column is basically 1 if it's a failure count and 0 if it's a success count.

Your code has:
    order by merchant, product, requestType, rss

So in your view you could do something like:
  <%
    else
        i = 0
        for request in @requests
%>
        ...
<%  if ((@requests[i].merchant == @requests[i+1].merchant)
             &&
            (@requests[i].product == @requests[i+1].product)
             &&
            (@requests[i].request == @requests[i+1].total))
                   
%>
           <td>       <%=   @request[i+1].total %> </td>  <td> <%= @request[i].total %> </td>
                 i = i + 2
<% else %>
                 what you had before
                 <td><%= request.rss == '0' ? request.total : '' %></td>
        <td><%= request.rss == '1' ? request.total : ''%></td>
                 i = i + 1
<% end %>
