How do i split table colums over multiple pages using xsl fo
I guess you mean something like: you have a 5 column table and you want to put columns 1-3 on one page and columns 4 and 5 on the next. You can't do this directly in XSLFO. XSLFO is not designed to cater for this kind of layout.
The best approach is to use a page master which represents two of your pages side-by-side and put the table so that it looks as if it were split, possibly adding a column without content and borders to simulate margins of the pseudo page in the middle. Of course this will screw automatic page numbering, and it may be difficult to emulate the static content you want to have in general. Also, you can't mix this with flowing content.
