Resizing groups. Parent and nested groups





You can resize groups by adding or removing rows or columns. You can create parent and nested groups.

Adding rows or columns to a group. To add rows or columns:

  • Select rows or columns.
  • On the main menu, point to Table, point to Groups, and click Combine to Group.

The result depends on the selected range and whether the range belongs to a group:

  • If the selected row or column range does not overlap any of the existing groups, create a group.
  • If the selected row or column range partially overlaps an existing group, add the selected rows or columns to the group.
  • If the selected row or column range is located inside an existing group, create a nested group.
  • If the selected row or column range contains an existing group, create a parent group.

Removing rows or columns from a group. To remove rows or columns:

  • Select rows or columns.
  • On the main menu, point to Table, point to Groups, and click Remove from Group.

The result depends on the selected range and whether the range belongs to a group:

  • If the selected row or column range does not overlap any of the existing groups, no action.
  • If the selected row or column range is located inside an existing group, no action.
  • If the selected row or column range partially overlaps an existing group, remove the selected rows or columns from the group.
  • If the selected row or column range contains an existing group, remove the group.

The picture below is an example of parent and nested groups.
