    I want to create 2 columns on my form to contain fields.

    Asked by cjohansen on July 23, 2014 at 06:16 PM

    How do I do this.  My form has 11 pairs of fields (husand and wife name) and it is very long to look at it in a single column.  Can I create a way to order the fields in two separate columns?  I have tried moving/up/down/newline and am not going to able to do it that way.

    Excuse me, I know I said this is what I wanted but I was mistaken.  I already have this but actually want 5 columns.

    1st col                 2 col          3 col       4 col         5 col        

    Attendee name, spouse name     attendee name, spouse name


    first 2 columns name & spouse

    3rd column blank space

    4 & 5 col name and spouse
