Hello,

I aware that the multi-column setting does not work for a sub report but I'm looking for ideas on other possible implementations that would achieve a similar result. My report has some general details on a user and then lists 30+ items below for that user. The sub report of items is just a list of the names, no extra detail is required. So without another column there's a lot of empty space and a rather long list of names.

Is there any way I could generate some sort of list or table of all the names without using the multi-column setting? Perhaps programatically using a html textbox?

Cheers,
Damien

Hi Damien Coyle,

The answer to your question depends on what are you trying to accomplish exactly. If you need a simple list of names going from left to right and wrapping to the next line when necessary, such as:

Name 1, Name 2, Name 3, Name 4,
Name 5, Name 6, Name 7, Name 8...

the solution might be as simple as concatenating these names and displaying them in a large enough text box. However, if you need a vertical list of names, organized in several columns which wraps to the end of the page, such as:

Name 1 | Name 4 | Name 7
Name 2 | Name 5 | Name 8...
Name 3 | Name 6 |

I am afraid in this case there is no easy solution to this problem for the moment. Perhaps if you can provide us more information about the layout you are trying to accomplish we might offer you more help.

Happy Holidays!

All the best,
Ivan
