How to print long text in text fields

I can use Multi-line Edit to enter long text into text
fields in datawindows.  However, when printing out in
report, the field can only be printed in a single line
limited by the width of the field.  Is there a way to print
the full text out in multiple lines?

Hi Alan,

I would check the Autosize Height property on the Position tab in the dw 
painter and also uncheck the Auto Horizontal Scroll on the Edit tab. 
Don't forget to Autosize Height of the detail band too!

hth,
Mark

Long Text Fields from Powerbuilder to DB2
I am having a problem using larger fields in PB 6.0 and DB2. There seems to be some sort of limit (253 characters) to the field size that may be passed from Powerbuilder to DB2. We are currently using DB2 Connect V5.0, SNA V3.0 as our communication software, and NT 4.0 as our base operating system for the Gateway. DB2 allows for much larger fields but cannot seem to pass along a field through out gateway longer than 253 characters. We are able to move larger fields from Fox Pro to DB2/2 without any problems. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated Jeff Carpenter, Trustmar...

ASE text field to ASA text field
Hi I'm having problems populating an ASA text field with data from an ASE text field using CIS(component integration services) from ASE to link up to ASA. After running the SQL statement it appears to put NULLS in the ASA field. All other data types appear to work fine. I know you can use readtext/writetext to read/write text fields properly but it requires a size parameter. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Here is the SQL I'm trying to run; insert asa_invt_prod_note select invt_prod_id,note_type,note,fpi_rep_status_flag,created_date,created_by,up...

Read text file into text field
Hi,How may I read the contents of a text file into a text field?The text file is located at server-side and the text field is in a web page (i.e., client side).The reason is, suppose the text file contains a list of 10 entities, the user may be able to edit the list in the text field and not type everything out himself.

Determining if a text field has hidden text
Revisiting an old question........Is there a way to determine if a notes field has extended text hidden from view on the form? I was thinking the most logical way was to use "describe" to determine if that particular notes field vscroll has been invoked......assuming it was set to true in the first place The reason I want to know this if the user wants to print off the form I want to be able to provide all the notes in print as a supplemental page.........As a work around I've best guessed and said if the text len > x then print an overflow sheet but that'...
