Using Headers spannig multiple columns & aspbound columns together in the same datagrid

I am trying to format a datagrid to display my data. I have some headers that span multiple columns. I was able to implement this using the following code structure.

<td rowspan="2" colspan="1" width="40%">Model</td>
<td rowspan="1" colspan="4">Sales</td>
<td rowspan="2" colspan="1">Distribution</td>
<td rowspan="2" colspan="1">Target Qty</td>
<td rowspan="2" colspan="1">Difference</td>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.model") %></td>
<td><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.target_qty") %></td>

However, I am not able to use automatic column sorting provided by Datagrid since I am not able to use boundcolumns in the structure above.
Does any one know how to implement headers spanning multiple columns and asp bound columns together ?

Sirac, I need to do exactly the same thing? Did you ever figure it out?

Unfortunately I couldn't find anyway to do that. I decided not to use headers spanning multiple columns until I figure out a solution.

Create multiple datagrid columns from single column
I have a datagrid that generates a single column of data that is extremely long. I'd like to find a method to create multiple columns from the single column so the data is easier to read. I have tried the DIV method to create a scroll bar, but it's still a single column of data. The other goal is to make the data printable. If I can crop the column when it hits the bottom of the page, and then start it again on a new column it will be easier to read and printable. Is this possible? Should I be using a different control other than a datagrid? Thanks!------------------------------...

When is a column not a column?
I have several extremely similar datawindows that I have to maintain that go against the same table. Recently, I had to add a column to that table, and also add the column to ALL of these datawindows that go against this table.

Can you control selectability of DataGrid column headers?
We have a DataTable with sorting enabled.  The person that I am working for has a complaint:  he wants the user to be able to select a column for sorting whenever the mouse is over the text in the header text of the column;  as things stand now, the cursor must be positioned  just below the text before the browser will allow selection.  Is there a way to control this, or  is this functionality that is internal to the browser? This behavior appears to only be an issue in Internet Explorer, not Firefox. the sort headers are simply an anchor...
