I am printing mailing labels from Crystal Reports using VB Code. In one sheet of labels, I have 13 labels on one side with 270 twips top margin and on right side I have another 13 labels with 400 twips top margin. The format of the label is same.  Is is possible to print the whole sheet with two different top margins. I select the fields at runtime. Kindly give me the solution urgently.

As far as I know no.

Crystal doesn't know which column it is in.  One thin to try
Are you printing down first or across first?

In either case add a short detail section before thecurrent detail section (set it to be 130 twips tall.
Conditiionally suppress the section with
//Across
RecordNumber mod 2 = 1

//Down first
RecordNumber <= 13
