Report Definition column's text is not wrapped



When you have a column with data that is the exact number of characters as the column's maximum, it is not word wrapped.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a report definition over a class which is mapped to an external table.
2. Ensure that a couple of columns length is declared as either 256 characters or 512 characters in the data base.
3. Ensure you enter those many characters (256 / 512).
4. Run the report.

Root Cause

You cannot add any new control to the default out-of-the-box Report Definition Viewer.


To have any custom control in the Report Definition Viewer for User Portal, create a custom Report Definition Viewer creating a new custom section to address such a use case.
