Memo field on a report -- doesn't "grow" enough

I have an ms access report with a text box that is linked to data of type memo. I have set the can grow property to yes. The actual data ranges from a vbnullstring length to 1176 characters.

When the report generates, the text box field that is linked to the memo field in the underlying table will not grow large enough to display more than 255 characters. Consequently, the longer memo fields are truncated, rendering their information useless. Is there a way to make the field grow to display the entire text of the memo field?

I viewd the field list and added the field from it directly. Try it that way.

Is the control on the report you're using just a text box? I thought it had worked for me in the past, but it's truly cutting off at 255 char with this report.

I have an identical problem.  I tried dragging the field from the field list but it is still being cut off at 255 chars.

try exporting the report and importing it back. Sometimes a corruption in the report could be responsible.
Take a back up of your Access MdB first

I found the reason for the truncation in another thread.  The textboxes were being truncated because the source query contained an aggregate function.
Thanks
