Moving the next record in 4 different places

Hi gurus,

I have been using this report for a while, printing in multiple columns, basically I divided the page in 4 quadrants record 1 top left, record 2 top right, record 3 bottom left, record 4 bottom right on page 2 the same, record 5 top left and so on, but now I got a request to change the way the records are shown, let say the data base has 100 records they want to see record 1 on top left, record 26 on right left, 51 on bottom left and record 76 on bottom right, basically I need to have 4 different pointers to the data base and move them at the same time, I would really appreciate If anyone have an idea how to achieve this.

    Are you only wanting to show the 4 records mentioned, or do you need to show all 100

      the code is just a formula, you can then group by that formula,

      The detail section, will need to be setup for multiple columns.

      in CR XI, you right click the details, select section expert, near the bottom, you should see

      Format with multiple columns, when you check that, you will see a new tab appear at the top.

      (Tab name is Layout) you can select the width, and height, etc... be sure to select format groups

      with multiple columns, and select a printing direction of across then down.

      Hopefully that will come close to what you need.
