Merge cells based on condition


I am trying to get the following result:

I have a table with 2 rows and 4 cols. First row is for headers. In the second row, I put a tablestart in the first cell of the second row, followed by the field to display in col 1. I've put other fields in cells 2,3 and 4 to finally end wit tableend field in cell 4.

Everything works fine and every row is displayed. What I'm trying to do now is to have different row format base on a condition ({IF "condition" = "result" "x" "y"}):

If condition is met, i would like to display the row with all cell merged to have only one cell.

Final result would look like this:


[First time condition is met]

Col1 | Col2 | Col3 | Col4

Col1 | Col2 | Col3 | Col4

[Second time condition is met]

Col1 | Col2 | Col3 | Col4



Where cells in [first time condition is met] and in [second time condition is met] are merged so the text will be displayed on the entire line.

Can you see how to do something like this? Note that my dataset has only one datatable.
