I have a report that I use columns in the detail so that there are 2 columns on the page going up to down and then left to right.  The detail is also set to Keep together because it contains several lines.  I also have a report footer on the report.  The report is working fine for the most part except for one the detail goes into the second column but doesn't use the entire second column.  When this happens the report footer gets printed on the next page, however if the bottom detail in the first row appeared on top of the second row there would be plenty of room for everything to be one page.  This is what it looks like:

Page 1:
      Approval Report
App1       App6
App2       App7

Page 2:
Report Footer
Total of Approvals: $100


I would really like for the report footer to print directly under App7 (it is the same width as the details).  But if that can't be done then I would at least like the report to move App5 to the top of the second column so that there is room for the footer at the bottom of the page.  Thanks.
