Title

Insert text at intervals

Post

I'm running FM10 on Mac OS 10.5.8.

 

I have a database, that I need to modify a text field, but I'm out of practice in my FileMaker scripting.

 

I want to add a Line Feed every to the nearest word after 80 characters for a block of text. The Block of Text may be one sentence or paragraphs in length. A Line Feed doesn't have to be inserted, place holder text will do just as well, since the text will be exported and post processed and the place holder text can be delt with then.
