^FO

^FO
sets the upper-left corner of the field area by defining points along the x-axis and y-axis independent of the rotation.

Comments:
If the value entered for the

or
y
parameter is too high, it could position the field origin completely off the label.
This command interacts with the field direction parameter of
^FP
and with the rotation parameter of
^A
. For output and examples, see Field Interactions.
The auto justification option might cause unexpected results if variable fields or bidirectional text are used with
^FO
. For the best results with bidirectional text and/or variable fields, use either the left of right justification option.
