 Problem with TEXT data types when generating report using Informix

We use i4gl 7.3 UC5 and print text routinely as you described, (define,
locate and select into the defined variable), but we do
not specify wordwrap.  We do specify a right margin in the report.  We
always have more than one line of printed text in these reports.

Good luck
