Hello! I have a report in access with a field (actually several fields) that are bound to memo fields that vary in length... I don't know if this is at all possible, but I'm just curious - is there a way to make the fields on the report "flexible" to accomodate how ever much text is in the memo field?

When you create a box on your report for a memo field, you use a text box. Make it small (0.5 cm high) and then set the "Can Grow" propert to Yes. It will grow to accommodate the data that is supplied.
