Is there a way to keep the formatting in a memo field during a report?  Currently if someone enters in multiple lines by pressing "Enter", it concatenates each individual line into a single string.  Is this preventable?

Example form entry:
Hello world
You smell nice today

Result in report
Hello worldYou smell nice today

You need to add the memo field to a grid cell, select the cell, click on the little '>' icon to the top right of the field and select the 'Multiline' checkbox. See the attached image.

This is just one of the reasons our Design Guide (coming shortly) tells you to use grids for everything in reports. To see more, have a look at our complete example:
