RE: linebreak/new line

pvuppa,

Are you trying to get TEST to show on more than one line, or are you concatenating the four fields together to show as one filed but want to skip a line when field1 and field2 changes.

RE: linebreak/new line

(OP)
Hi gizzy,
Im trying to group some fields together and display them in an orderly fashion like

customerinfo            companyinfo       SomethingElse
lastname, firstname     Name              somefield
street                  Address           
city                    SomeDate  
state                   SomeotherDate  
zip
.......so on
all my fields are associated with a single master file
please tell me a way to display all these fields together I tried Over but gave me an error saying TEXT FIELDS CANNOT BE PRINTED BY USING OVER.
let me know

RE: linebreak/new line

You would want to use your heading, subhead or subfoot to do this.  Same as the answer for your other thread "cramming different items in one column ".  I'll answer your freeform question there.
