I'm looking for a way to display related records in a grid. Specifically I need to display letters and the answers to these letters.
The trick I'm using now is to sort the records so the answer is always bellow the original letter, and the answer is shown in a different color or font so the user can easilly spot the answers.
I'm not so satisfied by this solution, and I don't have the option to use a tree or a master-details form using 2 grids.
So I'm asking the experts if there is a clever trick to display related information in the same grid in a visually attractive way.

unfortunatelly I deleted most of the test data jsut 5 hours ago!!!!.
Anyway in this case the first record is the answer of the second record. They are linked by the first (ID) column, and as I said the green color represents the original submission, and the black color the responce. If a letter or drawing doesn't need any action to be take has another visual appearance, for example blue font.
This "quick and dirty" solution works fine for a small amount of records, but imaine having thousand of records each one colored with a different color. I think it will not be the best user-experience.
