Thanks for your help i've finally got around to fixing the columns and am now happy with how it's all looking.
When the data is recorded (and delivered in the submission) I would like the fields within column 1 to somehow be identifiable as from that column and the same for column 2. Is that possible?
At the moment we are recording similarly labelled data within both columns so it's difficult to distinguish which is which when the submissions comes through. i.e. name is recorded in both columns (one field relates to the individual and one to a partner/relative).
This is only relevant at the top of the form.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to distinguish the fields based on the column they are placed in, the only way that I think it may be possible to achieve would be adding a prefix and hiding it with some CSS code.
You may add a letter as prefix:
Get the fields label ID:
Replace the copied id on the id on the code below:
font-size: 0px !important;

I hope this helps.

Thanks for coming back to me, apologies for the slow reply I had missed the response.
That seems to work, but is there a way of adding entire words and hiding that?
I'm aiming to record the info into google docs, is there perhaps something in that set-up that will allow me to organise the fields within their parent column?
Ideally I would like all of the fields under "Partner / in" to be presented in a way that's clear that they relate to that column. At the moment the information is recorded left to right, so you get "Name" from column 1 followed by "Name" in column 2, which doesn't make it easy to pull the info out once it's been submitted.
Any tips of wisdom would be really appreciated.

The only thing that I can think may help yo identify the fields would be using a configurable list widget to display the fields from each column, you can edit the widget to be displayed in a block and then display both widgets inline.
You will find the widget here: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list
This guide will help you adding the widget to your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-Your-Form
And the following guides will help you configuring the widget and editing its layout, the codes are for mobile responsive, but adding them without the media query will affect this no matter if the form is loaded in a desktop computer.
I hope this helps.
