Hi Experts!!
I have a report which has has few fields, and one of them is the Product_type , which is in the header of the report. I have attached the samplereport.jpeg file for your reference.
I have a form which passes the parameters to the report, and report executes based on it.
Sometimes it happens that the Product_type field which is in the report header(just above the line) has lot of values in it and gets overlapped with the line(as shown in figure).
Now, please could you let me know, how to make it dynamic depending on the product_types.
Sometimes it has few product_types so, it is not a problem, but if it has more it gets overlapped.
Kindly could you guys help me out.

Thanks,
 Vishal

You should check in your report designer.  When you click on the Product_type box on the report, you should be able to access its properties.  In the properties now, there should be settings for the size, like autosize, or maximum and minimum, or something like autofit.  If you enable those and with a combination probably of max and min values you will be able to solve your problem.
