Is there a command that I can add to a text field in a report that would force the second field to the next line on a report?  See below an example of the expression:

=[Address1]&”   “&[Address2]

I need Address2 force to the second line (I have already tried setting the field to shrink, which do move up the line below it, but if there is a Address2, I need it on a different  line below Address1

Are you trying to add a carriage return?

=[Address1] & chr(13) & chr(10) & [Address2]

If you need a space between the lines:



 =[Address1] & chr(13) & chr(10)  & chr(13) & chr(10) & [Address2]
