Setting Up Page Columns

Page columns can be displayed in a number of layouts so that they are both visually attractive and easy to follow.

For example, you can set up report columns to look like newspaper-style columns (snaking columns) where data wraps seamlessly from the bottom of one column to the top of the next. Column layout is applied by page and the default layout is one per report. You can set up any number of columns in the body of the report as you want.

To set up page columns:

  1. Choose Report then Report Setup.
  2. The Report Setup dialog box appears.

  3. Click the Column tab to view the Column page.
  4. Select the number of columns that you want to include on the page.
  5. If you want to include more than four columns on the page, enter the number of columns in the Other field.

    automatically determines the column width and spacing based on the number of columns specified, the page size, and the page margins. Column width and spacing measurements are set in either inches, pixels, or centimeters.
