I have a long and variable length Comments text that need to be disiplayed in the report. The lext length could be any where from 1 character long to 8000 characters long. I place the text box on approx the middle of the page(this is varable depending upon number of records/info displayed above it.
The text box... "keeps together" on the second page as opposed to starting at the middle of page 1 and continuing to page 2. I do not have a table, group or anything else on the form other than textboxes.
How can I force the comments textbox to begin on page 1 and continue to page 2,3 etc

Check the formatting of the text to see if KEEP TOGETHER is selected.
