Hi all, complete newbie here so be gentle with me...

I've made a report based on a simple query in the Report Builder, and want the results in two columns on the page. I selected the two-columns option and have, indeed, got two, but the data will only fill the L-H column and onto the next page: I have a load of pages with only one column filled. Any help much appreciated!

You have obviously tried creating this using the Wizard. Unfortunately there are many bugs in Report Builder. I don't recall this function ever working. You can still create a multi-column report artificially by manipulating your data through SQL. An example of this can be found in The Base documentation (found here) in Chapter 6 - Reports on page 37.

If this answers your question please tick the ✔ (upper left area of answer). It helps others to know there was an accepted answer.

Thanks: that's helpful, though not the press-this-button-and-you're-there solution I was hoping for :) I obviously need to get stuck into SQL - thanks for the link.
