With Oracle Report Builder it does not seem to be possible to have a text

possible in Paradox reports.)  If I make the text box double height in
Report Builder, then the second line appears OK, but most of the records
don't need a second line and end up being double spaced.  Is there any work
around for this.

What I have tried is to use a macro to check the length of each text string
and if it exceeds 40 characters then I create a second record to contain
the excess characters.

Are you using "Oracle Report Builder" or the included "Report Builder" extension? Which version of LO are you using, and which OS and version of "Oracle Report Builder" are you using? It would be helpful to know these things for the people here that know that type of package inside and out.

Are we still using "Oracle Report Builder" for the extension, or did someone modify it for TDF/LO and changed the name to "Report Builder"? I know that "Report Builder" not "Oracle. . ." is a installed and locked extension that has been a part of LO installs for months now.
