I am having problems with tabs. I have a form which is a thank you letter to donors. And it lists the contributions that a person has contributed. There are three variables for each contribution. And a person might have made donation to many funds, all of which need listed. The Fund name can be quite long and wrap to the next line and the dollar amount match the wrapped line.

Example:

fund number.................Fund name.................................Dollar amount of donation.


If the fund is long needs to wrap to the next line and line up where the fund name starts

fund number................ Long Fund name With way
.....................................way to much information ......... Dollar amount of donation.



And what I am getting is:

fund number................ Long Fund name, With way way way way way way
to much information ......... Dollar amount of donation.

My questions are:
Can this be done with tabs - Limit a tab width?
If not, any ideas how to accomplish this?


Thanks in advance for the help.

I would consider setting your information up in a table using a loop to generate the tags for each row needed.

Thanks, that is what I have done, used tables.
Any idea how to change the row spacing?
The rows are to far apart.
I don't see any adjustments other than margins.

I have answered my own question, using margins, drop to zero or a negative number.
