I need create a formula the will allow me to control when to wrap text. I'm looking for a formula that I can put in the 'Can Grow' section to determine this. I cannot use the the text sixe to limit the characters.

I think you will have to explain in more detail what you are trying to do.

You can use a code loop to add a Chr(10)  -new line-  every 10 characters .
Is that what you want?

No I want to be able to set the number of characters when a wrap of text will occur. Like after every 10 characters wrap text.

I don't see the difference between 'wrap every 10 characters' and 'newline every 10 characters'?

What I'm trying to do is where you set 'Can Grow' there is a formula button.

I need to know how to set the number maximum number of lines in a formula based on the size of the string in the text box.

You can't as best I can tell control the numer of lines from that formula.  It requires the result to be a boolean to indicate whether the field can grow or not.

Why do you want to control it?
If set to 0 it will grow as needed.

I don't think it is possible.  I don't know of any way to access that value from a formula.

Are you overwriting something below?

Is the growth causing an unwanted page break?
