Crystal Reports - Can I force a carriage return?

Crystal Reports - Can I force a carriage return?

Crystal Reports - Can I force a carriage return?

I want to create a formula field that will include all of my input prompts but I want to have that print out on the header of the report in an elegant manner.  Hence, I need to force a carriage return so that the format looks nice but I have to force this carriage return in a formula field that prints out these user inputs. Can anyone help?


RE: Crystal Reports - Can I force a carriage return?

Try chr(13), as in:

"Hi" +chr(13)+"There"

Can't recall if Seagate info supports the following:

join({?MyParm}, chr(13))

This allows you to show multiple values entered/selected from any one parameter.

Not sure what input prompts mean, multiple parameters, or a parameter with multiple values.

Anyway, chr(13) should handle the initial request.
