Spread a record over 2 lines

Sometimes you need to display more information than comfortably fits into 1 line. Would be nice to be able to spread the record over 2 or more lines.

  • Hi Peter, welcome and thanks for contributing!

    I am assuming you are referring to subtable data in your suggestion.  We will note that for future consideration.

    However, there are some ways to achieve that with Exact Forms Plus as it is today.  You can use formula fields to combine two or more fields together and use either "\n" if using a text field or "<br />" if using a Rich Text field in order to get your data onto multiple lines.  We do this a lot ourselves.

    Here is an example:
     - the yellow highlighted section is 1 line per record
     - the green highlighted section shows how we can combine many fields from the same record together into a single field and display it across many lines.  I hid the borders and headers so you don't even know by looking at it that the data is coming from a subtable.

      some sample code

      Formula Text fields using "\n"
      [field1] & "\n" & [field2]
      or use the list function
      list("\n",[Field1],[Field2])

      Formula Rich Text fields using "<br />"
      [field1] & "<br />" & [field2]
      or use the list function
      list("<br />",[Field1],[Field2])
