I need to create a report in SQL Reporting Services that continues the data in two columns on the page. I've done a lot with the Report Designer, but this one is new and I can't figure it out. Is it possible, I would think so. I need the data to be formatted sort of like a datalist(repeatDirection=Vertical, repeatColumns=5, then continue to the right side of the page. Please help!!

Thank you in advance,

I'm not sure I got your correct, but the only feature for columns as in newspaper supported in MS Reporting Services is available through:

Report -> Report Properties -> Layout -> Columns

You can set the number of columns in there, and I think it will do the sort of thing you want to have. You'll definitely have to play with it and adjust it as it suits you better because it's not so intuitive as one would want to have.

Good luck,
