      Checkbox output formatting

      Post

           Hello, so I was trying to use IWP in Filemaker.

           One of my fields is a checkbox entry, let's say ([ ]One, [ ] Two, [ ]Three, [ ]Four)

           I then look up records from a separate portal, but problem is the output always goes up/down

           So.....
            

           ([x ]One, [x ] Two, [ ]Three, [x ]Four)

           Prints out...

           One
           Two
           Four

           Is there a way to get it to print out...

           One Two Four

           ????

           Thank you for the help

               Does

               

                    Prints out...

                    One
                    Two
                    Four

               Mean that you are using an edit box format on this other layout?

               If so, define this calculation field and use it in place of this field to get a horizontal list of the selected values:

               Substitute ( YourCheckBoxFieldHere ; ¶ ; " " )

               Note, this puts a space between each value to match what you asked for, but you can use ", " to replace the returns with a comma and space if you prefer.
