Hide fields / data dynamically for cleaner list layout

Hi there,


maybe the desired outcome isn't possible in FileMaker but I am sure hoping it is... I am currently building a list layout and am hoping to be able to tweak the output so it doesn't repeat itself.

There are a couple of sorts / omits happening in the design-sketch, first we sort by week number (9,10) and then by date (03.03.2017,06.03.2017,...).


Essentially those are 8 data-rows and we hide the preceding fields if they have already been placed on the layout once.


I can sort and sub-summarize just fine but then I need to work with another row and ideally that wouldn't be necessary...


Any idea on how to make this happen? Can I use the 'hide object when...' function in some way? Or a clever technique of weaving together the sub-summaries...?


Thanks & regards!
