Multiple Coluns in Crystal Reports 12
Posted on 2011-03-03
Goal: I have a report to print packing tickets. The packing tickets print a different header for each account and then details for the product lines. There are several groups involved (by route, account, product location). I want the packing tickets to print 2 to a page -- across.
I have set up a main (holding) report that is landscape. The detail section holds the packing ticket sub report. The holding report is formatted with multiple columns - layout of 5.4" width (the height is disabled); down and across is specified.
As mentioned, the sub report has many groups (don't know if that is important to mention). I have tested running the subreport as multiple colums and not multiple colums. No matter what I do, the report prints across and then down - not down and across.
I would even consider having the report print 2 packing tickets to a portrait page (one on top of the other) rather than 2 across... anything to get 2 to a page and in packing ticket # sequence.
