7.Select the summary row in the report, and on the toolbar, click the Split Cell button. This will split the header row into its individual cells.

8.To have more then one row, click Structure, and Insert List Row Cells Above or Below.

9.Now, select any number of adjacent cells, and click Merge Cells to merge them.

10.Add the desired text to the cell.
