Is it possible to have a database that keeps the format of line break on its body?

I am trying to create a form that stores the information from customer email messages and another mentioning the representative response. there is no text formatting in the body other than line break.

It seems that after entering the text all the linebreaks disappear and it gets scrunched up.

In the field type "MEMO" a formatting with line break can be used.

I tried that but it does not work. On the form and table it removes line breaks.

Did you actually set the correct Text-Type in the properties on your text-field on the form? It should be set to multiline or multiline with formatting.

the multiline with formatting does not work but the normal multiline does. Thanks
