How to Create a Multi-Column Report - Across the Page and Then Down
|Product||Progress® Telerik® Reporting|
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.
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.
