    Resolved [RESOLVED] Crystal Report print in more than one column

    Hi,
    I have db containing names and ph nos. I need to print the same. I can print in one column ok. How to make a setting where the info be printed in more than one column i.e if say 30 names can be printed in a page (Legal) the next 30 should print alongside parallely. If there are more they get printed in the next page, following the above rule.
    Diagramatically it should be like...
    |Name| Phone No |Name| Phone No.

    Any guidance...

    Hi all, I think I found the solution. Open the section expert select the Details section and check the Format with multiple columns checkbox. Now another tab is added (in addition to Common & Color) with name Layout click the Layout Tab and set the width of each column. If the report you're formatting contains grouping, select Format Groups with multiple column checkbox. You may want to play with other options there. Now click OK. The Headings for the addl columns, however, needs to be manually added.

    This should find its way in the FAQ page are the mods watching....
