    Report formatting can grow options causing other values to move too

    I have a report the shows ingredients that can vary in length and I used to append the allergens to the end, of the ingredients, so they appeared right after the end of the ingredients. I want to bold the allergens but not sure how to do that. If I make it a separate field I am not sure how to make it appear right after the end of the ingredients if I make it a separate field after the ingredients. When I make the Ingredient field shorter and set to can grow when it grows it also moves fields to the left of it down. How can I stop the other fields from moving?

    If the text format property is set to Rich Text you can use HTML code in it. Like

    =[IngredientsField] & "<br><b>" & [AllergensField] & "</b>"

    Thank you pbaldy. That is a great tip that I did not know you could do. That worked. I had just created a sub report and put the ingredient and allergen there by themselves. I like your way better. :-)
