Showing contents of a cell.

Posted on 2005-04-23

I created a program in Visual Basic 6 (DAO) in which I have placed an MSFlexgrid.  Everything works okay except in one cell, I have some text that extends beyond the right border of the cell.  The text therefore is cut off (truncated).  I was under the impression that the grid would work like Excel, that is if the cell to the right of the cell containing the text is empty, then the text would spill over and would be fully visible.  My question is, how can I make it so that the text is not cut off, but fully visible.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    As far as I know you have to make your column wide enough to display the text.
