Problem Sliding Merge Field in Columns


Hello all,


I've been tearing my hair out over this one, hope someone can help. I need to create a list of contacts in telephone directory style -3 columns with entries printing from top to bottom, then to the next column.


I created a merge field, placed it in the first column, and set it to slide up, and checked "also reduce the size of the enclosing part." The problem is that the entries are of varying length, and when there isn't enough space for the bottom entry, it starts at the top of the next column, leaving a big space. See here:


Is there a way to get the text to go all the way to the bottom, then flow over to the next column?
