Add Footers to Repeating Data Tables in Word

The TableGroupFooter fields allow you to display a row at the bottom of the grouped table using TableGroupStart.  This row may be used to reiterate data that’s already displayed elsewhere in the table or to display new information. 

TableGroupFooter requires TableGroupStart and must reference the same dataset.

TableGroupFooterStart and TableGroupFooterEnd
Syntax

{{TableGroupFooterStart:DatasetName}}
{{TableGroupFooterEnd:DatasetName}}

Values

DatasetName is the name of the dataset from the Template Builder window.

Notes

After creating a grouped table using TableGroupStart, insert a row at the bottom of the table to accommodate the footer.

You may insert one merge field into the TableGroupFooter.

The TableGroupFooterStart and TableGroupFooterEnd fields must be placed within the same table row or cell.

The dataset referenced in the TableGroupFooterStart field must match:

  • The dataset referenced in the TableGroupFooterEnd field.
  • The dataset as referenced in the TableGroupStart and the detail region.
