I almost have my access-report the way I want it:
3 columns of data, set using the print-settings

The report now looks like this:

Header
Data1   data5  Data10
data2   data6  data11
data3   data7  data12
...

How do I make the report look like this:
Header  Header Header
Data1   data5  Data10
data2   data6  data11
data3   data7  data12
...

Thanks in advance

Put three lables into report's page header -one for each column.

Try to make three sub-reports in the main report, so for each column you can see the header, and you can change the header for each one.

I hope this help you!

That (regrettably) does not work.

Here is what happens:

Header  Header Header
Data1                 data5  Data10
data2                 data6  data11
data3                 data7  data12

Do you try to make a three subreports?

If you send me your database I'll make the report, with three subreports. My e-mail is guillems@i6.com

There is an example of this in the SOLUTIONS database that comes with Access. Open Solutions choose CREATE ADVANCED REPORTS then select Create a Multi-Column Report.

Basically you redefine the column headings (repeat them to the right of the ones you've already created, and change the Page Setup options to handle the new width of the columns.

This is described in detail in the Solutions.mdb

Good Luck

You absolutely do NOT need to make 3 separate sub-reports - unless you're really doing something special.

In this case, I'm agree with cekman.

SO I just put a comment, not an answer 8-)
