Details Section to Grow

Posted on 2013-10-15

I have built a Crystal report and it has all the info I need. However, there is a notes field that needs to be able to grow. I can do that but when it does grow it ruins the formatting that I want the report to have. I guess I am looking for the entire “details” area to grow as the “note” field grows. As you can see the report looks fine until the notes field grows then plewy.
 I have attached a couple of files. The first one labeled “want” is what I want. The second is “get” which is what I am getting. I also attached the report. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thank you

The detail section is always set to grow.  That is not the problem

The problem is, Crystal doesn't move objects down to allow for growth of the objects above so the line doesn't move.

The fix - Create a "second" detail section (Details B) below your details section
  RIght click the details section in the left margin
Move the horizontal line to Db
Extend the vertical lines so they end in Db on the line
