Merging Identical cells in database headers

Question

Good afternoon, 

Something i found to be a bit cumbersome, and was wondering if there is an already existing solution. I've grown to love the database management system of vectorworks when it comes to calling out record information. However, because some information in the database can be repetitive, and identical if say, the same records occur several times. Is it possible to merge records that are identical into one cell without having to repeat it. I know it works on a global level - meaning if i have 5 identical symbols in a design layer, i can summarize that information into one cell. However, if those 5 symbols for instance may have 2 identical records and 3 non identical records, it creates a cell for each record that isn't identical and doesn't merge the cells that are. Here is a diagram of what i mean. This would really help if this feature would be implemented.
