Multi-column reports with NAV Classic client

With the RTC it’s possible to create so-called multi-column reports not very different from the layout of a newspaper, that is a layout where the data flows over single page from top to bottom of each column.

But have anyone found a way to do this in the classic client, without using any 3rd party tools?

The only way I can think of is to create like an array and the calculate the number of rows and fill it across. But I don’t think that this is a very nice way to handle it.

Did nobody ever solve this in NAV classic?

Could I consider using a style sheet or mailmerge/excel?
