Does anyone know how I can change font size base on length of text file in textbox?  I have a need to shrink text file to fit a textbox.  I know that the textbox can be set to grow or shrink.  However, I need the textbox to stay static and not change, but the text can shrink.  

I know this can be done easily in Excel, but can't seem to get it working with Reporting Services 2005.  Any ideas or examples if anyone have any?

You should be able to do it by using an expression for your font size, something like:

=IIF( LEN(Fields!FieldName.Value) > SomeValue, "8pt", "10pt" )

Thank you for the assistance.  We decided to leave reporting services as a reporting tool and not so much as what we can do in excel.  Since users are able to export it, they can do the few minor tweaks.

Decided not to go this route any more.  Report is modify to print in one page, and user can change formatting when export to excel.
