I have a query that creates a label and columns but somehow when running the report it does not flow to the next column. Any ideas is appreciated.

    Hi @PhillipK I understand. Based on the link you provided, this is the display of the print layout. I tested that when I resized the paper to the right size in the print settings, the preview of the print layout would show three columns. But when you run the report normally, it will only show one column. 1

    I can't see anything in that micro-sized screenshot. Anyway, have you set the "CanGrowth" / "CanShrink" property for the TextBox?

    Hi @PhillipK I can't see your screenshot clearly. But you seem to have only created one column in the table, and the data will expand in this column and will not flow to the next column unless you insert a column and import the data. 1

    Can you show you what your source data looks like? Best regards, Aniya
