How to Create a Multi-Column Report - Across the Page and Then Down

Environment

Product Progress® Telerik® Reporting

Description

Out of the box, Telerik Reporting offers multi-column reports with data flow - down the page and then across. How to set up this report layout is elaborated in the help article How to: Create a Multi-Column Report. However, in some cases you may need a multi-column report layout with data flow across the page and then down.

Due to the data driven nature of Telerik Reporting this can be easily achieved with our Table/Crosstab/List item and indexed data.

Solution

  • Add a List item to your report definition;

  • Set the List.DataSource according to your datasource. For more info see: Connecting to Data help articles;

  • Open the Group Explorer in extended mode;

  • Set the (Detail) row group Grouping expression to: =Fields.MyDataIndex/3, where the number (i.e. 3) should equal the number of expected columns;

  • Set the (Static) column group Grouping expression to: =Fields.MyDataIndex%3, where the number (i.e. 3) should equal the number of expected columns;

  • Add the necessary items to the List item's Panel;

  • Preview the report.

The MyDataIndex field should start at 0.
