Create multiple datagrid columns from single column

I have a datagrid that generates a single column of data that is extremely long.  I'd like to find a method to create multiple columns from the single column so the data is easier to read.

I have tried the DIV method to create a scroll bar, but it's still a single column of data. The other goal is to make the data printable. If I can crop the column when it hits the bottom of the page, and then start it again on a new column it will be easier to read and printable.
Is this possible? Should I be using a different control other than a datagrid?

How is this data generated?  If you plan to create multiple columns, how are you going to divide it?  Is there any logic for it?  Give a scenario and explain your question little bit more.

Actually with a little more research I resolved the problem.  The data is pulled from an SQL database.  It simply grabs a list of zip codes for a given salesperson (their coverage area basically).  I was trying to format a datagrid using myReader.Read() and a counter variable.  This solved my problem, but I was missing values.

I did a little more reader and determined that a DataList did the trick much better. I bound it to the same data source as the grid, but was able to set the RepeatColumns property to 8. This spits out 8 columns exactly as I wanted it.

When is a column not a column?
I have several extremely similar datawindows that I have to maintain that go against the same table. Recently, I had to add a column to that table, and also add the column to ALL of these datawindows that go against this table. I added the column to the first datawindow, set up the edit control style, etc. I then did a copy/paste of the columns edit control to the remaining dw's (of course remembering to first add the column in SQL). Everything (update props, column specs, column props) seems to indicate that the pasted column is linked to the column I selected, HOWEVER, when I...

multi-column HG index vs. multiple single-column HG index
In IQ 12.4.3, HG index could be created upon multiple columns. My questions are 1) in terms of query performance, which one is better -- one multiple-column HG index or multiple single-column HG indexes? 2) And what about the load performance? 3) If one column is part of a multi-column HG index, do it make sense to create a seperate HG/LF index for it? Thanks in advance, Richard Mei Number one, I don't know (great start, eh?). Speaking from ignorance, though, I would bet the following are all true: (1) If your HG index columns correspond exactly to your group ...
