    There is not a way to do that using native Quick Base settings.  It would require non native coding.

    I know how to create a new code page but just don't know what the code is. Can you please provide me the code?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, I do not know how to do that code.  I try to stay native.

    If you only need this format for when the user is "viewing" the record (as opposed to "editing" or "adding"), then you could create a formula - rich text field that consolidates all of the information in whatever format you are able to create using HTML and inline CSS.

    I'd like to format so it displays in both view and edit mode. Do you have suggestion?

    I don't.  In edit, you are restricted to the minimal layout options unless you create a custom form.  I'm like Champion and generally stick with the native options.

    Here is a working demo that places two and three form "sections" on the same row:
