FastReport in Toad - wordwrap field that's varchar2(4000)

I created a report that lists field names, along with the comments from all_col_comments. The field size for COMMENTS is varchar2(4000). The field is not wrapping. Yet, when I create a report using all_views, where TEXT is LONG, the field wraps nicely.

Any ideas how to wrap a varchar2(4000) field ?

Thanks.

In the report designer, select the field, then in the left where all the properties are listed, find “Word Wrap” and check it. There is also a “WordBreak”
option that you might want to play with.

If in doubt, you could compare the fast report properties of the LONG column fields to those of the varchar2 fields.

The autowidth, wordwrap, stretched were all set the same way. The only thing that is different is the type of the field.

Thanks.

I just did a quick test. For me, neither datatype showed the 2nd line in a field unless StretchMode = smActualHeight, OR the field was just big
enough in the report to accommodate multiple lines.
