Report Builder - Table or multiple tables to show data on whole page



I have a little struggle with the feature of Paginated Report, that is the table. The desired view is something like this:


It is a setup of categories with assigned answers to them represented by background colour. The crucial thing is that it should go to the next column when the page ends. So far I managed to do something like this:


And in Design mode it looks like this:


Basically - this is good. The background of the second column is the indicator of the answer. I do not have sufficient data yet to test how it rolls when it reaches the end of the page, but I suspect that it will break to another page - which I would like to avoid and point it to the next column.

I have a limited number of options, let's say 32, so I'd need four columns 8 rows each. I was thinking about counting rows in this table, creating three additional and allowing only ranges of 1-8, 9-16 etc. but maybe there is a faster and easier solution? Also, I am thinking about how to check row position? I know there is RowCount() but I think it works for the dataset - how to limit it to only the table?

Has anyone had a somewhat similar issue? Or at least maybe could help with counting rows of the table/this dataset?
