Hi,
The output samples you have shown looks similar.
Can you attach the report with sample saved data and a screenshot for how you want it to be displayed?

I just tried to do what you want.  I don't see a way to do it through the normal formatting techniques.  You can indent the first line but or all the lines.  There doesn't seem to be a way to indent all lines after the first.

Hi,
All that data, is it a single record or multiple records?
I copied the content from input string and imported it onto Oracle database with a varchar2 column and created a report and I see the data is getting displayed as per your original inputs. Sample report attached.
temp5.rpt
The text you copied included the formatting.  I suspect his text doesn't have a CR/LF and tab or spaces in it.

Interesting James.  I tried that but I set the First Line indent first and it wouldn't accept a negative number.  Since it works the other way, it makes sense.  I didn't think to try it the other way round.
