You can set a layout to print in multiple columns in Layout Setup... on the printing tab.
To get your comma list of specialties, it would be easiest if you had a related table of specialty names such that a given record would link to only those specialties selected for that user.
Then this calculation will give you your list:
Substitute ( List ( Specialty::Name ) ; ¶ ; ", " )
If you have a single checkbox formatted field of specialties, you could also use a similar expression:
Substitute ( CheckBoxField ; ¶ ; ", " )
Thanks! This is my first project with FMP, and I'm not yet familar with the language. However, how do I keep an instance from spilling over to the next column?
That won't happen if you use layout setup... to specify multiple column printing. Your layout will only be one column wide and you can place and size your fields as needed within that space. The multiple columns
You may want to size some fields to be more than one line of text tall and use sliding to slide fields up and resize the enclosing part to make better use of the available spaces. See the Sliding options in the position tab of the inspector. (Sliding is only visible when you preview or print the report.)
