3.3. Create a Report with Multiple Columns

Problem

You want to print a two-column, phone-book-style report with large initial capital letters to set off each alphabetical grouping. There is no Report Wizard for creating such a report, and you don’t see a Column property to set up the number of columns you want. How can you make a multiple-column report in Access?

Solution

There is a way to format a report for multiple columns, but it’s not where you might look for it, on a report’s properties sheet or the report design menu. Instead, you’ll find it on the Columns tab of the Page Setup dialog. This solution guides you through setting up a multiple-column, phone-book-style report that includes a large drop cap for each letter of the alphabet.
