- Select the Width field on the Edit Field Screen and enter -1 to set the width of the Comment field to extend from the column where it begins to the right-hand margin of the page.

If a report form includes a Comment field, the Print Comment check-box is available either on the main report setup screen or on one of the secondary setup screens (such as the Inventory setup screen displayed when the [Inventory] button on the Inventory Database report main setup screen is selected). In order to print the Comment field on the report, enable Print Comments by clicking its checkbox (an "X" appears in the checkbox when it is enabled).

If a report form does not include a Comment field, the Print Comment check-box is not available.
