Columns of Data in Crystal Reports

Good morning, I have a very simple report that generates a large amount of data spanning over 20 pages that are grouped together by a code (eg. Alumni, Donor) and the data below refers to state/province and their respective counts.
eg.
Alumni 467
ON  228
xx xx
xx xx

Rather than top-to-bottom, can I have the data run in columns to use up the empty space on the page (right to left?).  The report size will then be reduced dramatically and will be more meaningful to see the details together.

Thank you in advance for your help with this!

Hi there,

I had to make another requested change and there are actually two grouping levels and unfortunately the information is contained within the second grouping.  Is there a way to do this when the details are located in the group header2?  Or, maybe I should look at reconstructing the report?

thanks very much for the quick response,

I was unsuccessful unfortunately, In details, I checked off Multiple Columns and then went back into the group header and no such check box was available there.

I have included screen shots for easy view,

Thanks very much!

Sorry bad memory.  It is on the LAYOUT tab after you choose multiple columns.

Hi Have you tried doing a cross tab report?
