Visually merging cells (as excel does) is not a possiblity with current implementation of DataGrid. But you can always merge data from two properties into a single cell using Converters. Also you can have two visual elements inside a single cells corresponding to two data properties using Template columns.

I'm bringing this up again to try to get an update on where the issue stands.  Are there still plans to add this as a feature to the WPF datagrid?  This feature has been in other datagrids prior to WPF for at least 15 or more years now.  This seems like a HUGE step backward that we can't simply merge cells.  Has anyone found a viable work around?
