HTML Table Styles

I don't generally work with html table chart type, but I have a dashboard that needs borders and subheadings if possible. I am only interested in what I can control in html tables, I don't want to use bricks.

I can't find any web examples with fancy tables showing borders and headings such as the following. Can this be done with the chart type html table and if so, how?

    @ArborRose I have not seen this with HTML tables but another table chart type in Analyzer called Mega table just got a border feature.

  • Pivot tables also have border options and you would be able to create sub headings by putting different fields in the Columns sections.

    Mega Table should work just fine. Thanks. Any idea how to I could make subheadings?

    Ashleigh - can I control the borders between specific columns? I need to create visual sections of three or four groups of columns. I'm not seeing that control with a Mega table.

    None of these solutions work. A pivot table is inappropriate to my need. A mega table only lets me set the global style for verticals (as far as I can see). I need to set specific columns left and/or right borders so I can "section" the dashboard.

  • @ArborRose The border feature is fairly new (couple months?) so that is good feedback to add to the idea exchange. Would an acceptable solution be to instead choose a color for the entire column instead of the border? That might be the only other way to establish some separation without going to a custom brick.

    I tried background colors and hate the result. In this case I am trying to mimic an excel sheet. Without subheadings and borders, my Domo version isn't very readable. To differentiate columns, the descriptions get out of hand. This is such a basic html ability. I fail to see the usefulness of an html table that doesn't do html.
