For pairwise comparisons, I understand the core idea in the Connecting Letter Report, is that if two groups don't share a letter they are significantly different. In the example posted here, I don't understand why we need both of the two first columns --- the second column appears to make the first one redundant since the second column tells us that all pairs between grp_0, grp_1, grp_3, grp_4, grp_5 are not significant and the first column is just the subset of groups 3, 4, and 5, which is covered by the list above.

Also to confirm, is it a correct interpretation to say this report tells us that the only pairing that are significant are grp_2/grp_3 and grp_2/grp_5?

Re: Help with Reading a Connecting Letters Report

Most of the time when you see a connecting letters report that seems "nonsensical", the groups typically have different sample sizes and/or the assumption of equal variances has been violated. Are either of these the case for your data? Also, the type of multiple comparison test that you used can play a part on this, too. Which test were you using?
