setting up a layout for a member directory


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

WP Home

Description of the issue

I am having major trouble trying to set up a layout in landscape mode on 8-1/2" x 11" which includes the contact information for 120 members of an organization so that it comes out as 10 members/page with 5 on each half of the page.  I have reproduced below the current fields in the layout in the box below (I am new to Filemaker so I couldn't figure out how to send a copy of the layout to you.  In a column adjacent to the fields on the far L I had additional fields for telephone number, telephone 2 & cell phone.  At the top R there is a field for Year Joined but that doesn't show up in its proper position in the issue report I am about to post either. Thanks for any help - I am totally frustrated after spending many hours trying to sort this out.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Name                                               Year Joined
Street Address                         Telephone
City, State    Zip                     Telephone 2 
Email Address                          Cell Phone
Address 2

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

so far, if I add a second set of fields that duplicate the 1rst set, all I get is the same name appearing in 2 sets of the fields for Name,/Address/, City, State, Zip/ telephone number etc.
