Issue with report data grouping / table layouting

Hello,

I have some problems to accomplish following report layout with Table/Tablix/Matrix control in report designer?

I simplified my issue to following easy scenario. Let's say I have data like this in my dataset:


How can I design a report that groups and layouts the data in a way like:

I have tried this with different groupings as well as a subreport for the centered "extra line"-productgroup, but I can't do it. Would be awesome if you have an idea!

best regards

Wow, thanks a lot for that fast help. That trick does the job!

Tried it first in WPF designer, which did not work. After creating in web designer it worked, also when viewing the file from the web designer with the WPF viewer... strange

Another short question: Any chanc to alternate the background color of the detail row? =IIf(RowNumber(NOTHING) MOD 2, "","LIGHTGRAY") doesn't seem to work, maybe because of the grouping?

cheers

Yes it's about setting the background color by expression, but my problem ist not the setting itself - it is the correct setting/expression for alternate row colors.
Related to your appreciated example from above, i would like to have alternating row background colors of the department rows.
Something like this:

Hi Gert, 
 
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 
 
Currently we don’t have multiple selection for Tablix rows. So, could you please pass the expression for all columns in rows separately as shown in below snap.
