    My project has come to a grinding halt.  I've had to bind my report to a SqlDataReader.  I know that theres 4 records in my test db that should be returned and displayed in 3 columns.  I have set the columns to 3.  My result... is the very last record displayed in the center of the report..... So heres my question:

    how do I manage to get multicolumns to work in asp 2.0? (designing mail lists for use with Avery 8160)

    I've used the business card report demo as a guidline but still doesn't work as it should.

    I have the margins set to where I beleive they should be as will as the column width and spacing. 

    I've fixed part of my problem... now I don't get the first record, but I get the other 3 by settting this.DataSource = dr;

    but they are all in 1 vertical column rather than 1 horizontal row (not sure if thats normal or not, I'll have to add more to see what happens)

    I've added enough records that should flow over to the 2nd column... unfortunately, it stays in 1 column and continues on a second page... then the paging does work... perhaps this is an issue for tech support?

    Hello Tim,

    Since we experience some troubles with binding a report to a data reader (especially in a web application) we would not recommend using it at this time. Rather, we would encourage you to use data sets or even easier - SqlDataAdapter. Since you are using the web viewer (you are developing a web application, correct?) and the report is rendered in HTML, you cannot count on the multicolumn functionality.

    To learn more on the limitations of the different export formats please review this topic in the online help documentation.

    In case our suggestion does not help, please send us your reports so we can examine them and get back to you with a proper resolution. You can send us your reports in a formal support ticket.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
