Add Ability to report data in a columnar format

When deigning a report it would be helpful to have the ability to format records in a columnar format from left to right.  Example would be formatting of labels, where there are multiple labels to a sheet of paper.  Another example is a customer asked me to print the tracking numbers on the Shipment confirmation, but because they can have a number of tracking numbers they wanted them formatted left to right in a column format instead of straight down the page.

    Rick, there are two properties you need to look at - TabularReport and TabularFreeze. Setting the tabular freeze position will cause a red line to appear on the report. Anything that is beyond this red line will appear as new columns instead of new rows. I've asked our support team to prepare a knowledge base article to explain how it's done.

    It is already possible to create tabular reports using the Acumatica report designer. The property name is TabularReport, and a number of reports inside Acumatica are setup this way: CR.62.41.60, CR.62.41.70, DR.66.00.30, etc...
