How do you make two columns of data in reports?

I want to make a directory of contact name, company, etc. and have it run down one side of the page and into a column on the right hand side of the page. Saves so much paper when we have a large number of people that we need basic information in paragraph form. For instance: John Smith James Frampton ABC Company Clayton Inc. 124 East Hampton Rd. 34 West St Hampton, NY Atlanta, GA Jane Smith ABC Company 124 East Hampton Rd. Hampton, NY

The ACT! report editor does not have option for a two column report as you have described. However the underlying report engine does have that capability. To make use of it requires direct editing of the report template XML code in Notepad or Wordpad. I have created some two column directory reports that are included in my custom report package.

Try file | Print - Address Book.
Select one of the 2 col options - maybe one of them will do what you need.
