Memo field on a report -- doesn't "grow" enough
Posted on 2001-08-22
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?
