Hello Jjuavinett

This can be done using the last tab of "page setup" for your report. Note that columnar output affects all sections but the page header and footer. If you wish, you can have a page header accross the page, by specifying values different from "same as detail section", which is the default.

For more complex layouts, you might need a report with a columnar subreport.

Good luck!

open the report in design mode, go into File --> Page Setup, click on the Columns tab and tell it you want 5 in the  Number of Columns.
