Greetings,

I'm new to the group and have a quick question...

I'm setting up an online database for teachers to enter homework assignments for their students.

Is it possible to set up an input field that shows simple paragraph formatting (line breaks and paragraph returns)? I am only able to get a solid body of text. And could this be done while copying and pasting from a word document?

Any suggestions?

thanx,

/kim

Use 2 fields (input / result, for example). The input field is the field submitted from the web page, and the result field is a calculation field that substututes line breaks with <BR> tags.

Another method that I havn't used is to use the 'break' encoding tag for your field to be displayed to the page i.e. [FMP-field: result, Break].

Thanks! I'll give it a shot. Haven't tried using calculations with CDML, so I'll have to bang around on it for a while. Of course, I haven't worked much with calculations, either, so I get to figure out two new things wink.gif

Cheers,
