Adding a List of Results in Access

I have an access form that I am using to record test results for a specific process.

I want to show the results in a sub-form table below the header data, but the data may be in excess of 100 records, so will need to show the results in multiple columns, say 5, rather than one continuous column.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks

Forms do not support multiple columns.  You will need to use a report.

Or, if you have some way of grouping the data, you can create multiple subforms each showing only the data from a specific group.  They will scroll independently.  Below is a picture of a form with multiple subforms.  In this case, the subforms don't actually scroll since they are single record forms.  The idea is to compare the numbers on up to 5 properties side by side.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for your response. Not exactly the solution I had in mind, but nonetheless pointed my thoughts in an appropriate direction and I have now resolved the issue.

Although not a technical result it did prompt the old grey matter and allowed me to see a solution using conditional formatting that serves my purpose well enough, so thanks for that.
