    Multi Line Model Problems

    bminer _

      Hello,

      I'm trying to create a model on a report similar to this (I had to just change one of the Monarch sample reports because of the sensitivity of my data).

       

      My memo field for "Description of Service" doesn't seem to be set up right (I don't have a ton of experience with the memo fields).  My memo field seems to pick up the line of dashes (i.e. "----


      ") as there is a line of dashes printed at the end of each client.

       

      Also, as there is no blank line between the page header, so I end up picking up some of that in my memo field as well.

       

      Does anyone have some tips for me?

          Hi Ben,

           

          You're going to need all of [URL="http://********************/extract/understanding-template-types"]Monarch's four template types[/URL] for this one.

           

          Starting with a single line detail template. I built the trap using the NN.NN structure of the amount field.

           

          Add an append template for the client name. Only a single line is required for this one.

           

          Select the four lines for the page header (may as well include the blank line below your titles). Make this a Page Header template. Paint any fields that want here.

           

          Finally, select your row of dashes, and trap on, say, dashes in the first three positions. Good enough. Make this a Footer template, but don't paint any fields for this template. Monarch will give you a warning prompt, but it's OK.

           

          Adding the page header and footer templates will stop your memo fields from running into areas in which they don't belong.

           

          That should do it for you.

           

          Let us know if you have any further questions or problems.
