i have a form where a user clicks a button which opens up another form which is formatted for printing.  This form has a text box which can expand if needed, and a buttom .  However, when the text box is expanded to the point that it takes up the bottom of the page, the data underneath the box is not printed.  Basically, the second page will not print.  I am using docmd.printout in the command button, and i have tried acprintselection, acprintall and print pages 1-2, but i just cant get it to print the second page.

Don't use a form for printing - use a report instead, and use a textbox whose CanGrow property is set to Yes.

when i bring the data further down the page, to where it would need to print a second page regardless of the text box, it prints the second page.  but when they are all put on one page, the second page wont print when the box is expanded.

You will need code to move all of the other controls further down the form page by the amount that the textbox has expanded. I would highly recommend using a report instead. You can save your form as a report by right-clicking on it and clicking "Save As". I don't know how your form is laid out though.

CanGrow and Can Shrink have no effect on form controls ... go with shane on making a report.
