Hello,

 

I have a product list in Dynamic PDF which is connected to a Access DB.

My Product Name field look like that :

Primary Product Name (Secondary Product Name)

 

I want to replace " (" with "\n" (new line, or break). 

How I can obtain a field with 2 lines? Any ideas ? I want a <BR> or \n after "Primary Product Name".

Primary Product Name (Secondary Product Name)

 

I mention , in pdf exist many entries and I cannot do it manually.

 

Thanks.

Familiarize yourself with "Floating fields". Basically you place a Text object and Insert-Floating Field into that text object. See the example here

My text field in the table is filled from the database with a single row, and I want my text to be interrupted before the first parenthesis, to move to the second row.

yes, you can use a Text object in the table field similar to what I have shown in my sample and the floating fields get data bound to your access data connecton. Any script that combines the 2 fields would not be required in this scenario.
