Crystal Report Group Header Wrap problem

In Crystal Report 2008 I have one group based on Supplier_ID. I change group header name with formula in which I put
: Supplier_ID &” “ & “ Supplier_Name.
However I have some long supplier names so I would like to wrap this group header.
How to do this, as Crystal consider group header field as number type field and will not do wrapping.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Rather than using the change header name, why not just add the supplier name to the group header as its own field.

You could also just delete the group header that is added and replace it with a formula like you use.  That formula will be a text formula so you can get it to wrap appropriately

One other thing you could try would be to create a fancy formula that would do the wrapping for you.
If you want to use this approach let me know and I will dig out my formula that does it.
