You would need to setup a Template grid on the document template with max 10 columns and maybe some non persistent helper entities to populate the templategrid as headers, before you generate the document.


So this is what I would try to do. This is your domain model you need and you need to popuplate is before generation of the document

This is your template


This could be your microflow to populate the template

I'm also interested in the solution Sjors is refering to, not sure how he intends to do this. afaik there is no conditional visibility on columns.

The only solution i can come up with is this:

Create a table with 10 rows and 1 column.

Inside of the first row, you place a second table with 1 column, in the second row you place another table with 2 columns, etc.

And the use conditional visibility on the rows of the first table to show the desired table based on user input.


I hope this helps.
