I’m designing a new invoice report/LST file for our system.
I’ve got a table in the report that has the body data along with a footer. (I’ll describe what I’m attempting to design / layout, but it may be easier to look at the screen capture as a picture tells a thousand words.) The footer has 8 rows.
For rows 1-7, I’d like to join the first column of all 7 rows in to effectively one large text box that will serve as a place for comments related to the invoice. (The columns to the right will serve as locations for miscellaneous charges, freight charges and sales tax.)
Reading the Designer manual I found the Anchor ability for the lines but that has a negative impact on the other columns, effectively collapsing them.
Is there another approach I can take to achieve this desired result? My attach screen shot shows my invoice layout without the anchor option enabled. The red line indicates the general chunk of columns/rows I wish to aggregate together.
