Display collapsed SUM and expand to see detail


I am tying to display a summarized line SUM(XXX) and then be able to expand to see the detail that makes it. Been playing with the ##group tag but haven’t been able to figure this out.

what would be the correct way to write such code?




Thanks for using Aspose APIs.

Please provide us your expected Excel file which you can create manually using Microsoft Excel. It will help us look into issue deeper and we will update you asap.

Thanks for your sample Excel file. Please also go through this article because it should answer your questions relating to how to group the table rows. Let us know your feedback.


@shakeel.faiz I have spent the past month in the instruction manual but I find the overall information lacking.

So far I haven’t been able to reproduce a single model (hence all my tickets asking for code examples as I cannot find workable examples in the manual)

Do note that in my example the SUM is ABOVE the detail, ASPOSE gives me an error if I try to add a ##group above the detail




Thanks for your posting and using Aspose APIs.

We understood your requirement and we have recorded your issue for further investigation. We will try to provide you some good RDL file that works fine with MS-Excel grouping feature.
