    Hi Gsoy G,

    I understand your requirement. Forms output and binding completely depends on the structure of xml sent out to adobe server for mapping.

    There are few instances where grouping of items might not work.

    I would suggest you to get the xml output of a sales quote, study the structure and write a script (JavaScript) in the form template at the table level or subform level to achieve your requirement.

    There are few scripts available in Adobe forums, please check them.

    Hope this information was helpful.

    Thanks & Regards,
