Classic ASP help: CellMerge

Table (1)



|–a--|----b-----|

|–c--|–d--|–e--|

|–f--|–g--|–h--|



I’m having problems constructing a table similar to Table (1). What I’m doing now is:


'Main Loop

'Section Loop
'(for cells a,b)
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.Write Section 'I, II, III…
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.InsertCell '***these two should be merged
Builder.InsertCell '***these two should be merged
Builder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = 2
Builder.Write “Section Header” 'should be written in the merged field
Builder.EndRow


'Sub-Items Loop
'(for cells c-h)
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.Write Subitem 'A, B, C…
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.Write “This is a child node of the section header”
Builder.EndRow
'End SubItems Loop


'End Section Loop


Builder.InsertCell
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.InsertCell
Builder.EndRow



'End Main Loop



When I execute this, the created document had very messed up tables.



What should display when done correctly is:



|----I.—|-----------------------1st Section Header--------------------------|

|---------|—A.—|---This is the 1st child node of the section header-----|

|---------|—B.—|---This is the 2nd child node of the section header—|

|---------|—C.—|---This is the 3rd child node of the section header----|

|---------|---------|-------------------------------------------------------------|

|----II.–|-----------------------2nd Section Header-------------------------|

|---------|—A.—|---This is the 1st child node of the section header-----|

|---------|—B.—|---This is the 2nd child node of the section header—|

|---------|—C.—|---This is the 3rd child node of the section header----|







I’m guessing that the error is somewhere in my (for rows a,b) code. Am I using the horizontal merge function correctly?

Nevermind, I solved it by looking over the HorizontalMerge sample code.
