Is it possible to have a Word Break in a Heading element...

HEADING
"PERIOD,1"

My reqmnt is to get Period in the first line and 1 in the Second line.

I cant go for Two seperate lines of Heading because, In Excel It will look Odd on Two Seperate cells. I want the Period
1 in the Same cell.

How to do this ?

I tried it like this:
DEFINE FILE CAR
BR/A4='<BR>';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
HEADING
"Heading<BR>LINE<BR>1"
SUM   SEATS
BY COUNTRY BY CAR
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
END
Hope this helps ...

Hi Gamp,

Thank you very much for the Suggestion. But It does not work properly with Subheads....

DEFINE FILE CAR
BR/A4='<BR>';
END

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM   SEATS
BY COUNTRY BY CAR
ON COUNTRY SUBHEAD
"<+0>Hiii<+0>LINE<BR>1<+0>"
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     UNITS=IN,
     SQUEEZE=ON,
     ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE,
$
TYPE=REPORT, HEADALIGN=BODY,  GRID=OFF,$

TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=1,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=2,     COLOR = RED, JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=FIELD,     ITEM=2,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$


END  


The Output comes something like below....





My Requirement is like Line and 1 should come in the same cell... One below other.... This is going to act as Column Title.

HEADALIGN=BODY, is the one that creates problem here....

any Clue on this ?


Thanks,

Ramkumar.

HEADALIGN=BODY,

Nail on the head as they say.

For what you want, you need to use a template/macro to insert a formula into the cell
that looks something like "Line" & Chr(10) & " 1" (basically, type into the formula bar "text" Alt/CR "text")

Basically a lot of work for a minor cosmetic issue.

I vote for multi line.

Try this, though you will have to revise the style sheet:

-SET &ECHO=ALL;

-DEFAULT &OUTPUT = 'EXL2K';

DEFINE FILE CAR
LINE_BREAK/A11 = IF '&OUTPUT' EQ 'HTML' THEN 'LINE<br />1' ELSE 'LINE 1';
END
-RUN

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SEATS

BY COUNTRY 
BY CAR

ON COUNTRY SUBHEAD
"<+0>Hiii<+0><LINE_BREAK><+0>"

ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT &OUTPUT

ON TABLE SET STYLE *

UNITS=IN, SQUEEZE=ON, ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE, $

TYPE=REPORT, HEADALIGN=BODY,  GRID=OFF,$

TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=1,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=2,     COLOR = RED, JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=FIELD,     ITEM=2,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
END  
-RUN

One option is to use a background color to eliminate the grid in the SUBHEAD. This allows you to place the SUBHEAD on two or more lines. Just a thought ...

TABLE FILE CAR
 SUM SEATS
 BY COUNTRY
 BY CAR
 ON COUNTRY SUBHEAD
  " <+0>LINE<+0> "
  "Hiii<+0>1<+0>Biii"
 ON TABLE SET STYLE *
  UNITS=IN, SQUEEZE=ON, ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE, $
  TYPE=SUBHEAD, JUSTIFY=LEFT, SIZE=10, STYLE=BOLD, HEADALIGN=BODY, BACKCOLOR=LIGHT BLUE, $
  TYPE=SUBHEAD, OBJECT=TEXT, ITEM=2, COLOR=RED, $
 ENDSTYLE
 ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
END

How about going back to the traditional way of breaking a line.
</n>


TABLE FILE CAR
SUM   SEATS
BY COUNTRY BY CAR
ON COUNTRY SUBHEAD
"Hiii</1>LINE</1>"
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
     UNITS=IN,
     SQUEEZE=ON,
     ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE,
$
TYPE=REPORT, HEADALIGN=BODY,  GRID=OFF,$

TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=1,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=2,     COLOR = RED, JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=FIELD,     ITEM=2,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
END

Hi All,

Thanks for all the suggestions.

As Macro would be much complicated for this small cosmetic correction, I had to choose tha Multiline as JG suggested...

And thats not too odd on the looks....

Thanks JG...


Thanks,

Ramkumar.

You can do it within a define but you have to use your knowledge of the output format and deal accordingly.

-DEFAULT &WFFMT = 'EXL2K'
DEFINE FILE CAR
  vbcrlf/A6 = IF &WFFMT EQ 'EXL2K THEN HEXBYT(13,'A1')||HEXBYT(10,'A1') ELSE '<br />';
  MULTIHEAD/A30 = 'LINE'||vbcrlf||'1';
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM   SEATS
BY COUNTRY BY CAR
ON COUNTRY SUBHEAD
"<+0>Hiii<+0><MULTIHEAD<+0>"
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT &WFFMT
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
  UNITS=IN, SQUEEZE=ON, ORIENTATION=LANDSCAPE, $
  TYPE=REPORT, HEADALIGN=BODY, GRID=OFF, $
  TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=1,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
  TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=TEXT,     ITEM=2,     COLOR = RED, JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
  TYPE=SUBHEAD, BY=COUNTRY, LINE=1,  OBJECT=FIELD,     ITEM=2,     JUSTIFY=LEFT,   SIZE=10,  COLSPAN=1,STYLE=BOLD,$
END

As your example specifies EXL2K I have used the line breaking used within MS Excel which is carriage return line feed characters, but if this was purely for HTML then I would have to use Gamp's suggestion.

One reason why complete description of your problem is paramount.

Only expanding on what JG had already mentioned

something like "Line" & Chr(10) & " 1"
Again, you just need to think about what you want and the limitations of your various output formats.
