Nevermind, I figured it out.
In case anyone else has a similar desire and wants to know... I simply
select all the rows I want to belong to a group, add a border around it
all, and insert a row above the box I just made. The inserted box
contains the label I want; I make sure to turn off word wrapping for
that one cell.

Using Calc, I need a way to specify that a group of rows all belong
together/have the same title.
For example. Say I have a bank that has multiple branches. Each
branch has it's own name like "southwest branch", but they're all part
of the same bank - Bank of America perhaps. Each branch has it's own
row containing branch name, address, phone, etc. but I need a way to
tie them all together as being Bank of America, ideally without
creating a column that is repeated for all rows.
That way, as I'm scanning down the page, I can choose a particular
bank and then select a specific branch of that bank.
I've tried using the Group function which I kind of like, however
there's no way I can find to label the group itself with the bank
name. I have to open each group and _still _don't necessarily know
which bank it is.
I've got a picture in my head that looks like a box which contains all
the rows, and the box itself has a caption with the bank name. I'm
open to any solution especially a better one.
Using a database is not an option.
Thank you in advance
