I have a repeater that has the following data in it.

Group a, some data.....
Group a, some data.....
Group b, some data.....
Group b, some data.....
Group c, some data.....

I'd like it to print like...

Group a, some data.....
               some data.....
Group b, some data.....
               some data.....
Group c, some data.....

Any suggestions on how to go about this?  I'm coding in VB.

If you bind DataTable to Repeater then better format DataTable such a way that it display look like group.

Original
Group A          10                20
Group A          10                30
Group B          20                10
Group B          20                40
Group B          20                10
After coversion
Group A          10                20
                        10                30
Group B         20                10
                        20                40
                        20                10
Means make first row appear for group and make another column blank.

I handled this on ItemDataBound.
Protected Sub Repeater1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RepeaterItemEventArgs)
        Dim item As RepeaterItem = e.Item
        If item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem OrElse item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Then
            If CType(item.FindControl("Label1"), Label).Text = Session("Variable") Then
                CType(item.FindControl("Label1"), Label).Visible = False
            End If
 
            Session("Variable") = CType(item.FindControl("Label1"), Label).Text
        End If
    End Sub
