Multi-column reports

Postby pssman » Mon Oct 10, 2011 1:13 am

I've been trying to locate ways to create a multi-column report. I was scouring Base's documentation and found this statement in the help for Ooo 3.3.0 under "Creating Reports": "Full flexibility to use report headers and footers, page headers and footers, multi-column reports."

I really can't find it anywhere in the interface, other help menus, online forums for this function. Can someone please direct me to instructions on how to create a simple multi-column report? :crazy:

When you use the Wizard to create a report select just a few fields to display then click Create Report and bullet Modify ... After the report is create change the page style from First Page to Default then use Format > Page to give it columns. Save the modifications, close and then reopen for a filled report.
