I have created a PDF report using FPDF which worked great, until I had to wrap text in the cells. I read an article saying replace cell with MultiCell which compiles, but each cell now goes underneath each other instead of next to each other.

Ive had a look at www.fpdf.org and cant seem to find out what Ive done wrong, Ive done some searches and again cant find anything wrong.

If anyones had any experience with this, PLEASE HELP :-S

Thank you
<?php
require('../../Scripts/fpdf16/fpdf.php');
class PDF extends FPDF
{

function Header()
{
    //$this->Image('myPic.jpg',10,8,33);
    $this->SetFont('Arial','B',15);
    $this->Cell(80);
    $this->Cell(30,10,'Title - BETA',1,0,'C');
    $this->Ln(20);
}
function Footer()
{
    $this->SetY(-15);
    $this->SetFont('Arial','I',8);
    $this->Cell(0,10,'Page '.$this->PageNo().'/{nb}',0,0,'C');
}

//Load data
function LoadTestData()
{
    for ( $counter = 0; $counter <= 100; $counter ++) {
        $data[]=array('Col1Value', 'Col2', 'Col3', 120);
    }   

    return $data;
}


function FancyTable($header,$data)
{
    //Colors, line width and bold font
    $this->SetFillColor(255,0,0);
    $this->SetTextColor(255);
    $this->SetDrawColor(128,0,0);
    $this->SetLineWidth(.3);
    $this->SetFont('','B');

    //Header
    $w=array(40,35,40,45);
    for($i=0;$i<count($header);$i++)
        $this->Cell($w[$i],7,$header[$i],1,0,'C',true);
    $this->Ln();
    //Color and font restoration
    $this->SetFillColor(224,235,255);
    $this->SetTextColor(0);
    $this->SetFont('');

    //Data
    $fill=false;
    foreach($data as $row)
    {
        $this->MultiCell($w[0],6,$row[0],0 ,'L',$fill);

        $this->MultiCell($w[1],6,$row[1],0 ,'L',$fill);

        $this->MultiCell($w[2],6,$row[2],0 ,'L',$fill);

        $this->MultiCell($w[3],6,$row[3],0 ,'L',$fill);

        $this->Ln();
        $fill=!$fill;
    }
    $this->Cell(array_sum($w),0,'','T');
}
}

$pdf=new PDF();
//Column titles
$header=array('Country','Capital','Area (sq km)','Pop.');

//Data loading
$data=$pdf->LoadTestData();

$pdf->SetFont('Arial','',14);
$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->FancyTable($header,$data);
$pdf->Output();

Try this way,

This is the example of cells which additionally have wrapping, and you don't have to pull your hair out with the somehow - not - so fine multicell output.
