Wrapping Notes etc onto new pages... (Locked)

I want to put something together that has titles, covers, synopsis and then notes and easter eggs. My Notes are split into trivia and bloopers. What I'd like is to be able to print them in a report without them just disappearing off the bottom of the page (some of the notes are quite long).

Can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance.

Ok...how about this!

Is anyone using a report which wraps these fields onto a fresh page instead of cutting them off? If they can let me know what it is I can go and crib from it?

Please?

As far as I know, there is no way to wrap a field to another page.

You can have a field with many entries (like Cast) limited to a number (say 10) on one page, then on the second page start with number 11 and limit it or not. One report that does this is Coffee Table Book Page 1 and Page 2 by The Holts. If I did this right, you can download them here:

Page 1

Page 2

For free text fields like Notes and Easter Eggs, you will just have to allot the required space on a page of the report.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that - must admit I thought there would be that feature in there somewhere (I use databases for a living). For what I have in mind I will probably have to export and mess around outside the app.

Thanks anyway!

...except of course that's no good either as those fields don't export...

question here...  I have edited an existing report, adding a 'notes' field and an 'Easter egg' field.  The problem is, there is plenty of room in the allotted box, but the text just disappears off on the right hand side.  Why is this?  What can I do to fix that?

Try setting 'Word Wrap' to True and see if that helps.
