Multi Column Report

Is there any way to display contacts in a report in Multiple columns?  What I'm wanting is two or three columns with multiple rows with just the photo of the contact (from a photo field) and a contact name.  Let's say a 9 X 9 table of names and images.  I think you can do the multi column/row thing with labels so I would think I could do this.

It's possible to create multi-column reports but it requires direct modification of the template XML code. Depending on just what you want you could try making a custom labek template and printing on plain paper rater than label stock.

We Like Crystal Reports as it provides more advanced options without the necessity of Rocket Scientist level programing.

Re: Multi Column Report

I heard that Crystal Reports doesn't work well with photo fields stored in the ACT database.
