>> I am also trying to make the totals "line" to stretch (colspan) over the table to create a line to divide the sections on this table

    That's one more good trick I learned, but the issue is if you have table border set to 1 the trick doesn't work because the borders cut the long colored row in cell piece. But thanks for trying!
