Page Layout alignment

Hi All,


    I have added 16 fields to a custom object. When i am trying to create new record all the fields all the 16 fields are displaying in a single column. But i i would like to display all the 16 fileds in one row(16 columns). While editing the page layout, it is providing option of displaying in 2 columns. can any body help me on this.





Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not possible on a standard page layout. Spring '09 release will add the option of having three columns.


Sixteen columns don't sound very screen friendly. Is there a particular reason why you want to design your page that way?


No indeed, you are limited to 2 columns in a standard page layout.  You can write a Visualforce page that renders a page 16 columns wide, but as J Baze said, why would you ever want to do that?


If you're trying to edit entries in a spreadsheet-like format, you could make an Enhanced List View to edit items inline.

Requirement comes up with 16 columns. That's why i am trying to display all 16 columns in one row. Thanks for all your suggestions. I will try using visual force.
