As you know we can only do groupby for two columns. Is there any way to groupby more than two columns (in SharePoint 2010)?

Yes you can. There is a blog that can help you with this but you need to use SharePoint Designer.

The main points are:

  • It can't be done "out of the box" in the browser
  • SharePoint Designer is needed to make the edits
  • You need to convert the view web part to a SharePoint Designer Data Form Web Part
  • You need a Sort and Group secret
  • You need to fix the footer rows
  • You need to manually add your totals, averages, counts etc
