Gang,

The OOWriter Autopilot report looks like this (| = column seperati=or):

Code:

+------+-------+--------------+-------+-------+-----+-----------+--------+
FIRST | LAST | ADDRESS | CITY | STATE | ZIP | PHONE | EMAIL
+------+-------+--------------+-------+-------+-----+-----------+--------+


I want to create a report that looks this:
Code:

+------------------------------+----------+--------------+
| FIRST LAST                      | PHONE | EMAIL
| ADDRESS                         |        |                   
| CITY, STATE, ZIP                |        |                   


However, whenever I modify the report template and megre columns, the report stops working.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

You might do the job this way. Open a new doc, do F4 and open your db table. Select the records you want in the report and click the Data to Text icon. If you put the bullet in either Fields or Text you will be able to edit in the right pane to get things where you want them.
