I have an Access 2007 report that contains a text box that the user types a title into.  Is there a way to make the text wrap in this box or do i have to make the box huge in case i need the space?

Users enter data in a Report? That's odd ...

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

No, the users don't type into the report.  I was thinking ahead of myself.  they enter their information into a form and then a query runs off the table created by the form and creates the report.

I changed the Can Grow to "yes" and re-ran the report.  It looks GREAT.
