    Filling a textbox in a report.

    I created a report to print each patients visit to us. In the report header is the patients personal info. The details section show the details of each visit to us. I ran out of room in the details section so I placed a text box in the report header section to show the patients complications at the time of each visit. So if the patient came in 3 times there would be a complication for each visit and I would like to display the complication for each recorded visit for the patient in the complications field. Ahhhh!!! Sorry for rambling.
    I know it would be so easy just to make it fit in the details section but no room left. How can I accomplish what I'm trying to do?

    I would appreciate any help on this one.
    Thanks
    Jols

    Re: Filling a textbox in a report.

    It seems strange that one could run out of room in the detail section, unless you have an extremely large number of controls. Assuming that is not the case, try making your detail section multiple lines, i.e., putting controls on multiple lines.

    Re: Filling a textbox in a report.

    Well Jols, I think I would move the patient details information into the details group header, grouping on patient (that would allow creating reports for multiple patients at the same time) and create 2 more group headers for visits and complications. Does that make sense ? <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
