Hi all,

I am a beginner at this so if this is deemed a very simple question then i can only apologise!

I have made a layout that is a standardised letter that has fields for title, name and address.

When i preview the letter. it shows the title, name and address but they have a big gap between the fields. The fields are the same size as the box they are made in on the layout page.

How do i get the fields to just say 'Mr A Smith' rather than the current 'Mr A Smith'

I the words to appear but ignore the size of the field box and just have a space in between the words.

I have tried to find the section in the instructions but don't know what i'm looking for.

I hope somebody can help me.

Thanks

Here's my advice:

You can create a concatonated field called

AllInfo

It will be a calculation and the calculation will look as follows:

Title & " " &Name & ¶ &

Address

I hope that works.

Here is an example of what has been suggested.

You can also use the Slide Function (as shown in my example file). To use this Function, you need to select the fields you want to slide while in Layout Mode, and then go to the Main Menu >> Format >> Set Sliding/Printing and the choose the Sliding Left

Note that effect of this is only visible in Preview Mode, and when you print.
