repeating repeating data items - HELP!

That was not a typo!!

I am trying to repeat a set of repeating data will make sense in the explaination below:

I have a form which requires a table, the table will contain a list of "JOBS" to be carried out by a workshop. There can be many "JOBS" listed in the table, BUT, within those jobs, there are then job items of which there can also be many!!

I am struggling to work out how Abobe will deal with this, my first thoughts were to design a table as follows:

A Header Row, then a data section containing a datarow for job, a data row for item (set to repeat) and then a footer row for subtotal, this data section would also be set to repeat, finally there would be another footer row for the grand total.

How would this work? I'm hoping that adobe looks for repeating data in the FIRST row of a grouped section to determine whether to repeat it or not?

Any ideas welcomed!

    There can be two ways of implementing a table.

    If there are more columns in a table, for ex:there were 12 columns then we can take the concept of subform and set the properties to repeat the subform

    The second way implement a table and keep that table in a Subform and repeat the subform not the table then hope it works.

    Please let us know if you still need clarity
