Terry, I was speaking more to the ability to use them in sentences -- i.e.
in the Memo field -- than in the names. I leave those blank, as previously
indicated. Donald was recommending I make a text macro out of the em-dash I
use so frequently, since there's no built-in shortcut for it and I have a
silly allergy to the character map. ;)

As for why en-dashes instead of hyphens, Word may *treat* them the same, but
they're different nonetheless. They look different, and they are used
differently. Pedantically speaking. (Who, me? Never!) :P

Practically speaking, I just settle for double hyphens, of course. <g>

But why put anything in the name? If you leave it blank, you can put
what every you want in the report definition, and change it at any

And, why put in en-dashes? Word treats them the same as regular
