Hi,

I have created a report with a rptTextBox that has the CanGrow property set to True. If there are multiple lines in the textbox, instead of the box growing the lines overlap one another. Any idea what may be causing this?

Many thanks,

Trevor

Is rptTextBox in a MS Access Report or some kind of VB control in a standalone VB app?

Hi all,

Still no help on this problem - to explain it a little clearer I have put a printscreen of the problem report online at:

http://www.fudgedesign.co.uk/eg.jpg

As you will see, the "printing" and "packing" sections have gone awry - whereas the "extras" field works fine.

As far as I can see there is no difference on the report in design view between the different sections - they are all textboxes populated from a database, and all have CanGrow set to True.

Any help, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated so I can finish this project off.

Many thanks,

Trevor

Have you tried deleting the rpttextbox and creating a new one with the same name?
