Report Formatting

I am having an issue with the word wrap feature in a Report. See attached picture.

Re: Report Formatting

Without examining the report template itself I can't tell if the word wrap problem is caused by the field size in the template. Assuming that the issue isn't the template field size then the likely cause if the size of the words in the field. Word wrap is an algorithm based on a zone before the limit of the field. When a word exceeds the size of the remaining room in the field, word wrap looks for a separator character such as a space in the word wrap zone. If found the data beyond the separator is moved to the next line. If no separator is found in the word wrap zone the word is printed beyond the end of the field to the next separator character and then the word wrap occurs.
