Why doesn't Access show columns in a Sub-report?

I have an Access application with a report that contains a sub-report linked to it.  The sub-report is set up to represent data in a 2 column format.  When I preview the sub-report the data appears in columns as designed.  However, when I open up the main report, the the data shows up in one column and continues onto the next page.  Is there a setting on the main report that needs to be changed to force columns to appear on the sub-report.  Your assistance is appreciated.

Hi rdbrunet,

In the subreport under Column Layout, click Across, then Down.


Good Luck!

Unfortunately, the report I have can not run accross and down.  I'll have to find another way to create it.
