I have a SQL Reporting Services 2005 report displaying an NTEXT field in a Table Control Row field.  One record is truncated.  I cannot determine how large the field is.  The report textbox cangrow property is set to true.  There must be a limit on the size of a text box field in a table control.  How can I change the report and/or SQL so that all the data can be displayed correctly?

There is a maximum of 32,000 characters that can be displayed in a single textbox in reporting services.  See http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3511134&SiteID=1 for a (very short) discussion.

Your only alternative is to add a number of textboxes to your report side by side, then partition the text out if there is more than 32k in one text field.

You mean to use an SQL function to break the ntext field in to 32k array pieces and populate the text boxes correct?
