You are right, Neil, and that is what I had - I had mis-keyed my email (different machines).

The [ ] is an extract only and does not force the length of the preceding text/attribute to be 30 characters long. The solution by "Results" - F;1;(ML#30);2;: - is the correct method, it will force attribute 1 to be 30 characters long and concatenate with attribute 2. So attribute 1 multivalue 1 will concatenate with attribute 2 mv 1, att.1 mv 2 with att 2 mv 2 and so on. The (ML#30) is ignored for blank values so att 1 mv 2 (and 3 etc) will be blank and not a row of 30 spaces. As long as attribute 1 is a single value you will end up with your desired result: Name of item 1st line of notes 2nd line of notes The other important thing for this dictionary item to work, is that the length must be the same value as in the ML# command.

For reports, I want to print a single column containing description with notes underneath. So if description is "Name of item" and notes line 1 is: "First line of notes", line 2 is "2nd line of notes", I want a column of: Name of item 1st line of notes 2nd line of notes I have tried the following correlative: F1;' ';1;30;;10;: but it repeats the description before each line of notes: Name of item 1st line of notes Name of item 2nd line of notes If I just concatenate with F1;10;: I am not surprised to get: Name of item1st line of notes 2nd line of notes I can't for the life of me work out how to do it. Can anyone help? Please!
