    Follow the advice provided by Abhilash.
    Combine that approach with a useful feature shown below. Crystal can automatically extend lines to the bottom of the section.

    Hi Sraj,

    What section is this field on?

    1. Whatever section it is on, insert a 'b' section below

    2. Move the horizontal line on this b section

    3. Increase the vertical lines so that they extend over to the 'b' section

    Change font size so it fits.

    Or dynamically change font size depending on length of text

    In format field dialog box find font and then click on formula box and enter formula like

    If length(yourtxtfield) >=20 then 8 else 10

    Also, the viewer built into VS is not to be used as the final result, it's for general layout only.

    First thing to do is upgrade to SP 20:

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

    Then test it by running your app.

    There are some fixes for object placements and may resolve the problem.
