Multiline WA forms
« on: May 03, 2006, 08:10:34 AM »
Is there a way to create them? What I need looks like this:

A - 1
   - 2
   - 3
B - 1
   - 2

Hi Pivotalman,
could you define the "multiline forms"? What do you mean about that?

Thanks,
MK

I've just realized what I said was rubbish. I mean't multiline secondaries on WA forms.

I just need to show a multiline text box right on a secondary as I've drawn in the first place.

Company --- Retailer --- Sells A
                                 Sells B
                                 Sells C

Something like that. Is it possible at all ?

I don't know if I understood you well.
As I  have understood, I think you want to place memo field on secodary grid.
To do this you have to:

- Add memo field to the table
- Add this newly created field to secondary
- Select properties for this field
- On the tab: "Text/Memo" you have option Line Count - you should set here how many lines you want to show on the grid.

I hope it was that what you meant :)

Best regards,

Hi PivotalMan,
Do you mean having a secondary table within a secondary table?

Hi all,

I wasn't sure about approach, I just need to show the data in the format I specified.

The advice about a memo field works. Thanks a lot!

Shicklin: is it possible at all to have a secondary inside a secondary ?

Thanks

kwiecin - Afraid not, just thought that that was what you wanted to achieve.
