Hi,

I'm trying to create a report for an inventory catalog where the individual items may or may not have a list of colors. What I've been asked to do is place the colors in a separate line beneath the item in a comma-delimited list, if they exist. I'm not sure that this is something that Crystal Reports is even designed to be able to handle. I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me if it is indeed possible, and if so, what magic spells I need to conjure to accomplish it

Requirements:

the main details line must be able to grow in the event that the item description is too large

many items will not have a list of colors at all, so the second line needs to be suppressed in the event that there aren't any

the list of colors may be quite long, so the second line will need to be able to grow as well

Thank you in advance!
Chris

You can always add more details sections.  And fields/text boxes can be set to grow (vertically).

if you add a second details section, do the two sections interleave such that it makes two lines per item? (I guess I assumed that they would each show in their entirety one after the other... I'll give that a shot and see if it does what I'm looking for... thank you!
