Multiple columns in a report

Microsoft Visual FoxPro - Programmer Exchange

I want to create a grouped report with a paragraph of text in the group 
header and group footer going across the width of the page, and the details 
(amounts and dates) displayed in 2 columns in the detail band.

Is this possible? It seems that if I set it to 2 columns it affects the 
header/footer bands as well. Is there any way round this?

Many thanks

Stephen

In VFP9, you should be able to accomplish this with multiple detail bands.

Thanks for answering Fred. I have tried multiple detail bands, but it seems 
that the multiple column option applies to the whole page, not jut to a 
detail band.

Thanks

OK, I'll make note of that.  I've had very little need for either multiple 
bands or columns, so I wasn't familiar enough with the combination.
