Hi,

I'm creating a report using the standalone report designer. The report is supposed to contain a long table that's narrow enough to fit on half the width of the page so in order to save space I set the report columnCount to 2 and it works great. My problem is that I want to add another table to the report that is too wide to fit in one column. The columnCount setting appears to apply to the entire report and I was unable to figure out how to limit it to only one part of the report. Is there something I'm missing?

Hello TK,

The ColumnCount property affects every section of the report except for the Page sections. Currently, there isn't an option to limit this functionality to only certain sections, if that would be an important feature for you, you may make a feature request on our feedback portal.

As a workaround, you may try to create this table in a separate report, then you can reference it in the main multi-column report as SubReport.

Note that there is another approach for multi-columns report, see How to: Create Multi-Column Report - Across the Page and Then Down.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or need further assistance.

Regards,
