Add a row of new columns labels in body part. Labels can be spanned along multiple columns, as merged cells.
Labels are associated with a number of columns to merge that default to one if not specified. In this case, you have to make sure that the number of labels is equal to the number of columns displayed.
The function can add only one single row by call.

values to add. It can be a
list or a
If it is a list, it must be a named list using the names of the columns of the
original data.frame or the
colkeys; this is the recommended method because
it allows to keep the original data types and therefore allows to perform
conditional formatting. If a character, columns of the original data.frame
stored in the flextable object are changed to
character(); this is often
not an issue with footer and header but can be inconvenient if adding
rows into body as it will change data types to character and prevent
efficient conditional formatting.
