Multiple column detail

I'm doing my 2nd ever Crystal Report using the Visual Studio 2008 version. The report has 2 different types of detail lines, each with their own corresponding heading. I made two groups, two details and set conditional logic to determine which one prints for each type of data. This works great. But I need 1 (and only 1) of the details to do a "Format with multiple columns" type display with 2 or 3 columns of the data fields in each row of the dataset for this particular detail. I can't see a way to set "Format with multiple columns" for only 1 of the detail lines. I'm thinking there must be some way to do what I want (perhaps an array?) but I can't find any examples on the web or in the books I have. FYI I tried doing this task with a Sub Report for the multi column detail but I ran into problems with the headings, pagination, and using multiple datasets so I abandoned that approach. Could someone please offer some help?
