Hi i have a dataset that i am displaying on crystal report in the standard format...

rec  |  name

How can i display like this...

Check it, edit to taste the values in the Layout tab, and hit Ok.
After you hit Ok and go back to your report, you should see shaded controls to the right of whatever controls you placed on your report, formatted the same as the existing controls on your report.  

Also, you'll need to copy-paste whatever labels you had above your controls, for the columns that will appear to the right.

In your Details section do a right-click:Properties, and on the Common tab you will see a 'Format with Multiple Columns' checkbox.
