Look at the
Look first at the example file of quickreport : Labelrep.pas

In Delphi 2.0 (Suppose also in Delphi 3.0) :
Put a new unit in your project via menu New... :
choose QuickReport Labels, in the header of this file you can read the following :

// QuickReport Mailing Labels template
// - Connect the QuickReport component to a datasource
// - Connect the QRDBText components to the datafields
// - Set number of columns with the QuickReport.Columns property (default=3)
// - Adjust the initial vertical positioning with the height of the page
//   header band
// - Adjust the vertical spacing with the height of the Detail band
// - Adjust the initial horizontal positioning with the QuickReport.LeftMargin
//   property
// - Adjust the horizontal spacing with the QuickReport.ColumnMarginMM or
//   ColumnMarginInches properties

So you have to do :

Put at TQuickReport on your form.
Fill in the datasource property
Fill in the Columns property : 2

Put a TQRDBText on the form for your Cust Name
Put a TQRDBText on the form for your Cust Address
Put a TQRDBText on the form for your Cust Telefoon
