Ken, I did something like that before but it lost the indentation as table format. Do u know how I can implement indentation or padding so I can have the same look and feel as table format. As If I have testcase name = test000000000000000001, I will lose the alignment in the table.

I hope the example below helps. I try to do most of the indentation calculations in advance by loading up global variables with information that will be used when going through the data. I've also tried to accommodate the titles in the calculations in case the titles are longer than the data elements.
