Hi there,

I'm trying to build an official sort of government form, and we need to be able to print an ID number in 'blocks'.
So I'm wondering if there is a way to display a single report field approx 13 characters long, with borders between each character, or perhaps set the text spacing and overlay it on top of such blocks.
What would be the best way to approach this issue?

I've attached a screen clipping of the block I need to show.

Thanks!
Stephen

Hi Stephen,

There is no way to display a single report field with borders around each character. The only option for such a scenario would be to use a predefined form as background image and set appropriate text spacing for the ID number.
