SMARTFORMS - long text display at second line.

Hi Forms experts,

I am developing a form in SMARTFORMS. I managed to print, however I am not getting what is expecting to get.

Expecting result

Item             Description                Code        Quantity
1                ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX   1000001     1320
                 YZ12334567890

Currect result (which is wrong).

Item             Description                 Code       Quantity
1                                            1000001    1320
                 ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWX    
                 YZ12334567890

If you see carefully, the Description ABCDE....dropped to second line. Can someone explain to me how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.

    Nothing wrong I guess.Just goto the text editor and delete extra spaces at the begining of the long text variable.

    Check the positioning of the variable used for fetching description. Morever delete the extra spaces.

    Hey Myahsam

    If this is a table that you have used in Smartforms then increase the width of this column

    else if it is a variable that you are passing the value in, increase the length of this variable node.

    Hope it solves your problem.

    1. Are you printing the long text through a variable or using INCLUDE TEXT? If it's through variable try with CONDENSE.

    eg. &FIELD(C)&

    2. Try changing the START options in general attributes of the text.

    3. Check the indent and spacing of the paragraph format used.
