I need to display large amounts of text in side by side columns that flow from the bottom of one to the top of the next one, and continue onto a following page.  Is it possible?  I'm including a diagram to explain what I mean.

Hello Timothy,

Thank you for the image demonstration!

It looks like you are trying to achieve a two-column layout that goes down and then across the page, is that correct?

We do support multi-column layout, see the How to Create a Multi-Column Report article for more information.

Dimitar,

Thank you for replying.  I've almost got this working, but it seems to have difficulty with largish areas of text.  Do you have any suggestions, please?

Thanks

Timothy

Hi Timothy,

Can you elaborate on the difficulties that you have?

Did you try the approach suggested in the “A generic error occurred in GDI+” while using MeasureString KB article? It suggests a workaround for displaying large text in the Report.
