Good Afternoon Experts!

I'm a modifying an existent report. This report was created as a "Mailing Label Report", (I assumed this because in the Design View, it shows a gray vertical line and after that line the screen is blank ). I need to change the report so it uses all the space available in the page.

How do I get rid of the Page Division? is there a way to convert the report to a Standard Style?

Thanks for your help!

Multiple columns are controlled in the SECTION EXPERT

Right click the detail section in the left margin
Click SECTION EXPERT
Uncheck - Format detail section with multiple columns

Save as a different report

When I go to the Section Expert, the "Format with Multiple Columns"  is checked but is grayed out and I cant uncheck the checkbox. Any other suggestions?

Anyway in the Layout Tab I was able to change the width of the column and now I can use most of the space in the page.

I will stick with this solution if I don't get any other comments.

If it is grayed out then that is probably the only way to do it.
