I have to display below columns in the report and based on column name I need to add a heading on top of the column names. What is the best way to achieve this design. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    12       10    2   13              1     2     1

to have sample properly aligned.


Why would you

?

If your displayed column's may change, you should have something (a selection made by the user per example) to have them changed, use the same trigger/selection to select and display the corresponding heading.

The question is how we can group the columns (then i need to provide heading on top of column titles) based on column title? I am not clear on your first reply?

Something like this?

TABLE FILE CAR
	SUM SALES		AS 'Sales'
		MIN.SEATS 	AS 'MN Seats'
		MAX.SEATS	AS 'MX Seats'
		CNT.DST.CAR AS 'Cars'
	BY	COUNTRY		
HEADING
"countries<+0>Sales stuff<+0>Seats stuff<+0>Cars"
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
TYPE=HEADING,
     HEADALIGN=BODY,
$
TYPE=HEADING,
     LINE=1,OBJECT=TEXT,ITEM=2,COLSPAN=1,
$
TYPE=HEADING,
     LINE=1,OBJECT=TEXT,ITEM=3,COLSPAN=2,
$
ENDSTYLE
END

Do you want to make groupings of columns and put a heading above the grouping?
