SOS. Help With Recursive Data Grouping

Posted on

L

Agggg. Can someone please point me in the right direction!! I have a flat table with groups of groups represented by the A, B, C. The groups aren’t the same, I just did it that way to be quick. I need to organize the groups like they are organized in the drawing with A being the largest and C being the smallest of the boxes. What is the best way to do this in code?

We’re talking serious carp here. All data should be collapsed where applicable. For example if you have two A’s that are the same they should be collapsed into one A. If you have two B’s that are the same within an A they should be collapsed and so on.

I’ve tried and tried and can’t come up with any practical design pattern that works. Any help? Please?
