I have created a report. See attachment Report.jpg. It is based on an A4 landscape sheet divided into 3.

I am trying to get it to span 3 times into an A4 Sheet as seen in attachment A4_3Col.jpg.

In MS Access it is as easy as saying you want 3 columns onto an A4 sheet. Then it divides the page into 3. Is there a way to do this in Valentina Report writer?

Hello Trevor,

To print a few columns on one page it is necessary to set the full size of paper - A4, landscape.

For printing one group per column - an ordinary Page Break control can't be used.
Instead, you can add the programmatical switch to the next column in the Group Footer post_place script:

if( report.page.column.index == 3 )
report.newPage();
else
report.page.newColumn();


Page Footer region is one for all columns, so you can repeat the contents three times.
As it doesn't contain any data or summary fields - this approach will work.

Also, we'll try to make it possible to place bottom part (Cut, Process, Bend, etc) to the Column Footer and avoid duplication.
Currently, this region can't be printed always at the bottom of the page.

Attached an example:

Thanks. Works great.:D :) .

Look forward to sorting out the column footer. But very happy to work with this the way it is.
