InfoPath 2010 and Word 2010 Quick Part Doc Properties

Hi,

I have used a SharePoint 2010 Workflow and Word 2010 Quick Part Document Properties in order to pass the information in my InfoPath 2010 Form through to a Word Document in a SharePoint Library.

This had worked very well until it came to doing the same thing but with a Repeating Table which has a field which is Multi-Line. The information is passed through ok but my issue is with alignment. The Repeating Table in InfoPath has four fields:

1. Date
2. Name
3. Time
4. Narrative

The Narrative field is the Multi-Line field as users may want to put in quite a bit of detail. My issue is that the other fields won't correspond with the Narrative besdie them if the Narrative is several lines long. ie The other fields don't have Line Returns to allow for the Line Returns in the Narrative Field.

A bit hard to explain clearly so see picture attached.

Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Is there any way for example to have the other fields in the Form formatted as Text Fields that take a new line themselves whenever a Line Break is inserted to the Narrative Field?

Or any way to count the number of Line Breaks in the Narrative Field and apply the same number to the other Fields when mergeing the data?

Any help very much appreciated!

Thanks

Could HTML Tags be used within a Rich Text box to achieve this even?

Say we had a Rich Text Field hidden in a different View of the Form. We could then use a combination of the Concat Function and HTML to write and merge the values to the hidden field and use that in its place?!?

Not sure if this is possible or even the best way to do this if it is.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
