    Default Memo Field word merge print each line not all in 1 row

    I have a word merge doc and I have a memo field that contains line items to be placed onto the merge doc such as.

    item test #1234
    item test #2345
    item test #6798
    When doing the merge it prints on the template in a row such as
    item test #1234 item test #2345 item test #6798

    I need to get it to the merge template the same way it shows in the field.

    It may be an issue with your template. When I do an on-the-fly merge it seems to insert as it exists in the memo field.

    Tested in V11, not V9.
    There can be only one.

    I did a on the fl merge and it puts it in line so there must be a field difference or a5v9 to a5v11 difference
