Accessing associated variables on template grid

I am attempting to create a template grid displaying information about an entity as well as it's associations. However the associated variables do not get displayed when I create the template. I read on the "How To" section that this can do done by nesting template grids?

Do you mean that the associations are not automatically generated. So if you have entity A with attribute A associated (1-1) with entity B that has attribute B you want the template grid to display A from A and B from B? Then you can auto fill the grid with A and add the attribute from B by adding a row to the top left template cell and add the B attribute from B manually. There is no need for nesting.
