Default My First Table - help!

Hi everyone,

So I know it's right before Christmas and the last thing anyone is going to do is look at this board, but maybe Dan or Ste or somebody is out there?? ;-)

I'm attempting my first table with multi-line record use. I've got a letter that's going to include a section with a report of dates and amounts in columns. There will be varying numbers of dates and amounts for each letter.

I've worked out the easy part of telling Fusion I've got multi-line and telling it to change based on the Company name field. And I've got the basics of a table set.

What I am trying to figure out is can I make it flow the data into columns...
My letter layout allows 6 columns (so 3 groups of Date Amount columns).
One company may have 25 lines of dates and amounts while another has 6 or 10, etc.

Can Fusion flow that info into columns, or will I have to massage the data into columns?

I'm attaching a screen grab to illustrate what I need and here's the start of my table code: (since I don't know how to flow the info, it's just repeating the same info in each column group right now - but I wanted to give you what I've got so far...)

var table = new FPTable();

var data = FusionPro.GetMultiLineRecords();
for (var rec = 1; rec <= data.recordCount; rec++)
function ExField(str) 
{ return TaggedTextFromRaw(data.GetFieldValue(rec, str)); }

var content = ["Date","Amount","Date","Amount","Date","Amount"].map(ExField);

var row = table.AddRow();

row.SetContents.apply(row, content);

// row.Cells[0].Margins = row.Cells[1].Margins = { Top:0, Bottom:0, Left:0, Right:0 };


return table.MakeTags();
