Format your details section to print in multiple columns.

Report menu, Section Expert.
Highlight Details section, and select the property called "Format with Multiple Columns"
This creates a new tab called Layout.
Under Layout, you can set the width of the details section (total width divided by 5), and also set the direction to across, then down.
