Add extra column header to table


I want to achieve something like this below


Sales Qty, Status, etc are all the fields in a table that I want to display. However, for some of the columns I want to add an extra header like in this case for Profit. Is there a way around?

Regular Visitor

Did you ever get an answer? I am trying to find something similar.

Hi @Anonymous ,


As far as I know there's no such feature. Each column can only have one column header.

Hi @Anonymous ,

As per my understanding you can't add a header  without using drill down functionality in a matrix and in a table that wont be possible. Either you have to create an additional hierarchy and then have to use that in drill down

Hi @Anonymous Not very clear but have you tried using a drill down based on column with a matrix ?

Hi @jaideepnema  I actually do not want a drill down. It is just a static additional header. Like for ex I may want to mention a formula for Profit in the second header . My actual fields are different and complex - I want to add second headers and include some description what that field means so that consumers of the report have clarity about what that field is. 

Drill down in Matrix may work if I have a hierarchy but there is no hierarchy involved for my use case.
