We have a report created with CR 11.5 and have a field for detailed instructions our sales staff can enter text into. It will grow to 1000 chars, but will overlap other text sections below. Other sections in the report have a graphical representation of the product and need to stay in same size. How do I input a formatting code so that Crystal will print that text on a new page after "X" chars? Ideally saying "insturctions in detail are printed on page #2" in that field The code we use for the feild is below with my desired results written in ===========real code begins=========================== if LogoInstructions <> "" then str_inst := str_inst + ". " + Replace(LogoInstructions, "Enter Logo Art Instructions Here.", ""); str_inst ==========real code ends============================= ===================my desired results code============== if str_inst > 50 char then new page display "instructions printed on page #2" =================desired results code ends===============
