Form builder help will tell you, for every item in the property palette, whether or not it can be set programatically.

So what does it say?

that'd be because you can't.

Create two items, one for each column and use the button to change which one is visible.

really?

ouch!

If you're doing that this much that suggests to me there's something seriously wrong with your data model. This is not something you should normally have to do.

You could try basing your blocks on procedures - that'll give you far more control over where stuff is put in the database.
But that makes things more complicated.

I'd look long and hard at your table design and see if you change it to avoid having to do this.
