I have a table with 30 columns and 100 records. How can I display this table in Crystal Reports in tabular format across multiple pages? For example, if the first page can only show columns 1 to 10 and only records 1 to 25, then the second page should display columns 11 to 20 of records 1 to 25 and so on. Is this possible?

I would have thought that this would be many times easier in Excel.

Haha... yeah man... me too. Unfortunately, I don't have a choice. :( Have to try to do it in Crystal Reports first... Until a Crystal Reports expert can officially say that it can't be done.

Are you saying it is always 100 records?
Do they have an id field which allows for selection into groups of 25?

Nope, it is not always 100 records and we don't have an id field which allows for selection into groups of 25.

Then I think you have achieved your aim.

I don't think it is possible to do this in CR.

The only standard report in CR which allows for horizontal pages is a crosstab and it doesn't sound like your data qualifies for such a report. (or OLAP which also doesn't sound relevant)

The other solutions I can think of require at least an id field so that you can make sure that different pages have the same set of records in the same order.  If that were true then you could possibly devise a solution based around subreports, or the use of a sql command to create 3 copies of records which could be printed in different groups.  I also considered exporting to pdf and manipulating printing from there but I still can't see how you could do this.
You might want to leave this a bit longer though - in case someone has a suggested answer.
