12. Report-Writer Statements : Print Statements : .Ulcharacter Statement--Set Underline Character : Description
Share this page                  
With the .ulcharacter statement, you can specify an alternate underlining character or an expression that evaluates to an underlining character during report runtime. Underlining occurs only in reports written directly to a file or printer. Report-Writer ignores underlines when displaying a report on the screen and in reports sent to a file or printer from the screen.
The character remains in effect until Report-Writer encounters another .ulcharacter statement in the report.
Report-Writer prints underscoring (_) on the same line as the text. If any other character, such as a hyphen (‑), is specified with the .ulcharacter statement, Report-Writer prints underlining as a second line immediately below the underlined text.
