I have a report with 2 fields of data but there is a lot of records and would like to split the records and show 2 or 3 columns of the records on a page.  How can I do this?

FYI I am trying to do this in a subreport.

In the section expert dialog, there is a checkbox "Format with Multiple Columns".  Once you click it (probably on a details section), a Layout tab will appear.  In the layout tab, you'll need to set the width of your columns and the width of the gap between them.  I think in the layout tab, you can also specify that you'd like any containing groups formatted by the column widths specified on the details.

I don't think anything stops this from working in a subreport.

Hope this helps.

That should work in the subreport.  You need to set the detail section in the subreport to display multiple columns.
