Hi,

I have a requirement to generate a report for badges of attendees for a conference.

The requirement calls for an A4 print out of 4 badges in a 2x2 grid, so that each bade is effectively A6 size.

There is an additional requirement to have a single attendee details repeated per row.

Do you have any pointers as to the best way to achieve this?

e.g.

<pre>
---------------------------
| Atendee 1  | Attendee 2 |
| Details    | Details    |
|            |            |
---------------------------
| Atendee 3  | Attendee 4 |
| Details    | Details    |
|            |            |
---------------------------
</pre>
 
and
 
<pre>
---------------------------
| Atendee 1  | Attendee 1 |
| Details    | Details    |
|            |            |
---------------------------
| Atendee 2  | Attendee 2 |
| Details    | Details    |
|            |            |
---------------------------
</pre>

Hi Dan,

Please check the layout options in How to: Create a Multi-Column Report and How to: Create Multi-Column Report - Across the Page and Then Down. The first approach is a page setting and applied when the report is previewed in Print mode. The second approach depends on data, as it determines in which cell a field will appear.


I hope this information helps.

Regards,
Stef

Thanks Stef, yes that's exactly the approach I have taken so glad to hear it is on the right track.

In terms of showing the duplicate records, do you think this is best handled by just duplicating them in the data set first?

Regards,

Dan.

Hi Dan,

Reports are data-driven and duplicating the data records will work.
Depending on the designed layout, you can test adding a column in the Table item and using the same fields, or using the ReportItem.DataObject in expressions in case you need to access a parent data scope.

In order to provide you more accurate suggestions, please post the designed report's definition (code).
