Report Builder: Wrap Text at the Column level

Would be very helpful to select columns in tabular reports where you could wrap text,  especially if the Column Headers names are longer than the data that resides in the column.

Hi Jeff,
Tabular reports do have a wrap lines function today. Were you looking for something different?

Sorry I was in a rush to the dentist when I added this.  I meant to say select columns to wrap text "as the default" so that they automatically load wrapped.  Does that exist someplace?  I didn't find it in Report Builder - but I'm still acclimating to all the changes over the last year so I could easily have over looked it.

Also, being able to select individual columns to wrap, not all or nothing.

Thanks Dan!

The one thing that I also noticed on this is that if you click the "Wrap Lines" box, and then attempt to sort the column, the line wrap is removed. More of a nuance than anything :)
