    Default Problem with variable length fields in detail section

    Hi.
    Can anybody help me?

    I have a report that the detail section consists of two rows.
    In the first row I have the fields: code, description (can occupy 1 or several lines) and quantity.
    In the second row I have the fields: notes (can also have variable length and occupy several lines) and an image of the product.
    When the description of the first row occupies several lines, it overrides the notes of the second row defined in the details section.
    How can I tell the fields in the second line to scroll and start printing from the last printed row of the description?
    Thanks in advance.

    This sounds like you are using a Canvas layout which has absolute positioning.

    Put first and second row each into a Band element. Set the layout of the bands to Row.
    Set the layout of the Details section to Block. The Details section will contains only the two bands mentioned above.
    Set the height of the elements in the bands to "100%". Set the bands height to a number, this will be the minimum height and the cell will grow as needed.
