Word wrap on reports

Word wrap on reports

I am using v9.8 and am writing a report.  I want to word wrap a text field so that I can get the report on to one A4 landscape page width.  I have looked everywhere for this function.  Any ideas?

RE: Word wrap on reports

Text and memo fields have properties to "expand" or "reduce" in vertical height depending on the content. In a report panel you must also set the panel properties to "expand". And you cannot put any fields under the field you want to expand.

Give this a try.
