    How to remove carriage return created by checkbox set?




      I am very new to filemaker and hope that somebody on these forums can help me with this issue:


      I have a field called "Causes" that my users are filling out using a checkbox set. So for a given record, the field usually looks like this:


      Arts and Culture

      Environmental Sustainability

      Health and Fitness


      In a separate layout I refer to the field using a "merge field." The merge field needs to display the data horizontally across the page like "Arts and Culture, Environmental Sustainability, Health and Fitness." Right now it just shows the first cause and then cuts off the rest of them. As I see it, there are two ways to fix the problem: either filemaker needs to stop inserting carriage returns between values that are checked, or I need to learn how to configure the merge field to display the data differently. However, I am open to other solutions as well.


      Thanks for the help!!
