I use LyX for almost everything written, but it really isn't the best
tool for doing this. But you can make it work.

I'd suggest getting the columns by setting up a table with fixed
column widths. Use article class, and center the table using the
paragraph settings. Adjust the margins (Document->Settings->Page
Margins) and if you still have too much space at the top of the page
you can use Insert->Formatting->Vertical Space to put in a negative
space at the top of the page.

But I'd use a spreadsheet such as Gnumeric or LibreOffice Calc to do
the job.
