Default Wrapping Report

  I have a project and I want to know the best way to do it. It's a two parter and I'm going to give both up front in case one impacts the other.

Part One: Create a report which will contain a field which wraps text at 72 or 80 characters and does so smartly (in order words, it doesn't just break words).

Part Two: This report is going to need to be exported to a plain text file and maintain formatting.

Thanks and any help I can get would be great.

Part two may be easier since you can use a character count and then line breaks on spaces only. Just use the WriteLine function. Then Len() to check the string before writing.

I am not sure what is going on with the Can Grow that it is breaking in the middle of words. I don't recall seeing that before.
