Crystal Reports Multi Column - Only First Column Headers Show

I've designed a two column report in Crystal Reports for VS 2010. The column headers on the second column don't show. A quick Google search revealed the following answer in several places:

"When you preview the report, you'll see that the field headers appear only for the first column. To have field headers for the second column, insert a text object."

Problem is, I have no idea where to place the text object. I've inserted one in the page header, the group header, the detail section, etc. No results. It doesn't say where to put it, what to do with it, etc. Maybe I'm being dense, but I just can't get this to work.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Bret

Do you have data in both columns?

Where are the field  headers for the first column?

Hi,
Yes, I have data in both columns. It's showing up in the second column correctly, but it's not showing a header for that column. I've attached a picture of the report in design view.
Thanks,
Bret

In CR XI I was able to get them there by copying them and placing them in the correct position in the page header.

Yep. I didn't realize that's what they meant to do. Maybe I should just watch a movie tonight.  :)

Thanks very much!
