Select this check box if you want to suppress the selected field. The field values won't appear on the Preview tab, nor will they print.
This list contains the horizontal alignment types available for the field (for example, left, center, and right).
Keep Object together
Select this check box if you want to keep all the objects from a given section together on the same page. If there is enough room to keep them on the current page, the program will print them on the current page. If there is not enough room, the program will print them on the next page.
Close border on page break
If an object has a border and the object is split over two pages, you have two options: put a border around each part of the split object, or display each part of the object with a partial border. Select this check box to display a full border.
This check box is useful for objects that contain variable length strings, such as memo fields.
- Select this check box if you want the program to expand the object frame vertically when the text within the object is larger than the frame.
- Clear this check box to truncate the data when the value is larger than the frame.
Max number of lines
If you have selected the Can Grow check box, you can use this box to specify the maximum number of lines by which the program can expand an object frame. Simply enter the desired number of lines into this box or enter a 0 (zero) if you do not want to set a limit.
Tool Tip Text
You can add Tool Tip text for the selected field by clicking the Format Formula Editor button and entering text within quotation marks. Tool Tip text appears when you leave the mouse pointer over a field for a few seconds.
This list contains the rotation options available for the selected field. Use the Text Rotation options to vertically align the fields and text-based objects on the report.
Suppress if duplicated
Select this check box if you don't want the program to print field values that are duplicated when it prints the report.
Suppress Embedded Field Blank Lines
Select this check box if you want the program to avoid printing blank fields ?that is, fields for which the database returns no information. This option prevents blank lines from appearing in the report when some fields are empty.
