Displaying SQL data in rows with different cell lengths

Hello Experts;

Using Delphi 7 is there a component or method I can use to display data from a SQL database where the first nine fields are contained in one row and the tenth field is in a row below the first nine. The data display sequence repeats for additional rows except when the tenth field is null, then the next nine fields are displayed.

Inserting a row in a Tstringgrid doesn’t work because the text field has to be loaded into the first cell and can only be read by expanding the column width which hides the data in the nine columns above the single cell. A sketch of what I am trying to do is attached.

Do you need editing function or just view? Such thing for viewing purpose - there are reporting componets (freereport, fastreport, quickreport, ...) For editing - there is none component know to me .... Similar here.
edit: maybe using TDBCtrlGrid component + some show/hide/resize functions on per row ....
