      I understand how to insert headers and use the left and top to display a field but how would I insert a column?

      My fields are a text box text set to top and a check box.
      2 columns but need to insert a column that has labels.

      I need to have the labels/headers on top which the “Insert header” provides if needed but I would like to be able to set the headers to the left or right or use the same index # to get them side by side.

      What do you recommend?
      Can I have a field and not display the field but display the label only?

      I have attached a screenshot. The text in the red is what I need to add. 3 rows. each unique to its row.

      I kind of found a work around but I feel it is cheesy.
      I created new fields in SP (lblDisplay1,lblDislblBlank2,lblBlank3,lbbDisplayText1, etc) and hide them with jquery. Alignment can be cumbersome but it works.
      Is this the way or is there a better/preferred way?

      Sample code I put in Misc


      Thank you.

      You can do it a bit easier like this:
      Add the side-by-side fields, but do NOT check “Stretch side-by-side fields over both form columns” in the “Side-by-side” tab.

      Add this custom js in the Misc tab:

      $("#sbs_OuterTR_1").find("div.dffs_tdWrap:first").html("<h3 class='ms-standardheader'>Q1</h3>");
      $("#sbs_OuterTR_2").find("div.dffs_tdWrap:first").html("<h3 class='ms-standardheader'>Q2</h3>");

      The number in this string represents the side-by-side index used in the “Tabs” tab when setting up side-by-side: sbs_OuterTR_1

      The attached image shows the labels.

      Yet again, nice solution. Thank you.
