Crystal Reports field error.

Hello, I am new to Crystal Reports. I have an existing report that I have been asked to modify for our company's use. A description field length grows and overlaps a following description field below it. Is there a way to have the report move the 2nd field to avoid the overlapping print?

    Right click on the area to the left of the section where the two description fields are located and select "Insert Section Below...". This will create a new section of the same type as the original section. Move the second description field into this new section. Put the bottom of the original section at the bottom of the first description field or any other fields in the section. This will allow the section to grow when the description grows and the second description field won't appear on the report until the section above it is finished.
