Fourth column does not show on Comparisons and Summaries Report

When running the comparisons and summaries report and selecting a report type of summary, the fourth column of the report may be excluded from the report preview if there are four or more reporting periods. It does not make a difference what is selected for the reporting periods, the field to use, or what columns are selected.
