Crystal Reports – How to display more than one line of text

The following steps show how to make a field in a Crystal Reports display multiple lines, for example, if you had a HTML field that contained paragraphs.

  1. Insert the field into the report (if it hasn’t already) and right-click on it and click on ‘Format Field’
  2. On the ‘Common’ tab, tick ‘Can grow’ – you can also set a limit to the field using ‘Maximum number of lines’
  3. Click ‘OK’ to save the changes
  4. The field will now automatically expand to show multiple lines, to the limit specified.
