For some time, Wijmo’s Japanese market has asked for a MultiRow grid feature: one that displays cells in a stacked format, reducing the need to scroll right to view additional columns. While it’s not a familiar spreadsheet format in North America, it’s very popular in Japan, and makes a lot of sense once you understand how it works.
