Title

Formatting Report Rows

Post

I have a report that shows a preview of how an invoice is going to look.  It is the final "hardcopy" of our invoice, which we will be sending to our customers.

Our part descriptions are typically long and have multiple rows of information.

So...what is the general strategy for getting multiple lines of descriptions paginated to display on the invoice?  It's easy to keep everything to one line, but that's inconvenient.  I could also predefine a max width, but then that would lead to having big chunks of whitespace when I don't have a long description.

I was hoping that Filemaker had the ability to paginate a portal across multiple pages, but it appears that I have to program it manually.

 

Please let me know your thoughts.

 

Thanks!
