To illustrate the problem I made a screen type for this tab with both a formlist and a standard form of the same table, stacked on top of each other. There's only one row in the table. This shows that "field in next column" works in a normal form (bottom) but doesn't work in a formlist (top):
The labels of the first and third column are hidden (0 width).
Is this a known issue?

I guess it only works for Forms and does not work for Formlists.
If you are looking to put all column values behind each other, you should set 'Field no of positions further to 0' (I believe you want this)
or to put them under each other, set it to 1.
Hope this helps you out!
