Ok, now that I have a field in my report that concatenates as needed (Thank you Jason!!), when it exports to Excel, not all of the data is there? It truncates to the width of the table. Is there any setting where I can have that field be word-wrapped in Excel without having the end-user manually doing it? Thanks!

Leisa,

You will either have to add header rows and put new aggregation elements
with filters (say on row count) for each or set the row height for the
header. Look at the attached example. The first row's height is set.
The second header row contains an aggregation element with a filter.

Jason
