Does anyone know how to create a report that prints 2 pages wide? 

Lets say I want column A, B and C on the left page and D, E and F on the right page.  The report should end up 2 pages wide and several pages long. 
 
Any suggestion appreciated.  Thanks, Matt
With all due respect.

Update - Since posting this I've worked out a way to 'fudge' a 2 page wide report but it only works for the first 2 pages.  If anyone can better that please let me know.
 
Thanks

In theory, this shouldn't be too difficult, although I haven't tested it so it may or may not work.
 
1.  Go to Page Setup on the File menu.
2.  Turn on "Dissociate formatting page size and printer paper size".  Also turn on "No Printer (optimize for screen display)"
3.  Set the width of the report to twice the paper size. If you want it to be on 2 8 1/2 x 11 portrait pages, set the paper size to 17 x 11 (ledger).
4.  Put fields A, B, and C to the left of the 10" mark (assuming you have .5 inch left and right margins) and fields D, E, and F to the right of the 11" mark (to start - you can tweak their location after validating that this works.)
 
Run your report.  When you print, set the print options to print on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, no scaling.  Make sure that "Fit horizontal pages to one page" is turned off.

Thanks for the post. 
This is the area I've been investigating with no luck.
You'd think that 'Fit horizontal pages to one page' would be the answer but it doesn't seem to do the trick. 
 
I followed your instructions with no luck.  any further tips appreciated. I'll keep plugging away at it.
