Flowing text from One Memo to Another

edited October 2010 in General
Hi,

When the contents of a TdbMemo is too large to fit on one page I need a way
of splitting it between two or more pages similar to what can be done in
Microsoft Word text boxes. Is there any way of doing this?

    Hi Ken,

    I apologize but I'm unclear about what you are trying to accomplish. In my
    testing with MS Word, when a Text Box extends beyond a page boundary, it is
    simply cut off. Perhaps if you give me an exact description of what you
    would like to see happen, I can help you find a solution.

    According to your article, you would like to have a column of text next to a
    column of unrelated text followed by the next page with two (or more)
    columns of text continuing the first column. Is this correct?

    ReportBuilder does not have the concept of "linking" text objects to
    continue their output in a different location. It would however be possible
    to do this manually in code using memo objects. This would be a matter of
    finding out where the text ends for the initial memo, then starting back up
    again with the remaining text for any continuation memos.

    Two memos on two pages with the remainder of the text that cannot be
    displayed in the first one carried over to the second.

    Hi Ken,

    ReportBuilder does not have a built-in way to accomplish this. Currently
    this will need to be done manually in code.

    The idea of linking text objects like you can in Word is an interesting one
    and I will add it to our list of possible enhancements for a later release.
