Formating the data fields in the report

On the report

I am displaying following fields

AA NO  MW    HOURS  STATUS    SCHEDULE DATE
DESC
------------------------------------------------------------
As Description is varchar field so after displaying other fields on the
next line I am displaying Description
After that I am displaying one static line

----------------------------

But discription is varchar(1000). Sometimes it has only 50 chars
then there is too much  gap between the data and static line
How should I make it to come together

for eg:

As suggested I had done for Description as one line

But at few places the dashed line is just comming as continuation of the work description in the same line
