I am going to create two data sets in dhis2. They have similar row names (data elements) but the column names are different

Table 1
      col1   col2   col3
row1   1       2      3
row2   4       5      6
row3   7       8      9

Table 2
      col4   col5   col6
row1   11     12     13
row2   14     15     16
row3   17     18     19

How can I do this? I can only assign one category combination to the data element. It seems I can only create one table.

If you want the same data elements in both data sets, but different disaggregations for those data elements, this can be done in version 2.25 and following. When assigning a data element to a data set, you can override the category combination as defined in the data element with a category combination that is specific to the data element as it is used in that data set. For details, see "Flexible disaggregation" in https://www.dhis2.org/225#general
