SharePoint table wrapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I'm looking for a way to wrap a Sharepoint list into to 2 table colums. I have a List with multiple columns of data that are displayed using the 'basic table' format of the list. The problem is this list can become long and usually does not span the entire width of the page (we print this daily). To save space and paper I'd like to display/wrap the table into 2 columns to the is displays in following format.

    1         2

    3         4

     

    Where each item (1, 2, 3, 4, ...) each contain a few sharepoint columns of data

     

    Thanks

  • So, I'm not sure what you want your final output to look like, but you could create a DataViewWebPart in SPD and modify the XSL so that each cell contains two values and you could manually modify the column headers, so it would look something like:

     

     

    field 1 / field 3 field 2 / field 4
    value 1
    value 3
    value 2
    value 4
    value 1
    value 3
    value 2
    value 4
    value 1
    value 3
    value 2
    value 4
