How do I extend the length of a form in MS-Access

I have created a form in MS-Access which has some large text fields. Is there a way to extend the length of the form so that I can fit more content on it and the text boxes on the form don't appear broken (see attachment). Alternatively, is there a way to have a second display screen on the form, e.g. by clicking a "next button" where I can display more content so the form has essentially "two pages".

Thanks.

In this case, have you considered using the Tab control ?

I am not sure what it does. Will it display a grid as in the illustration?

Yes. You can add controls (including subforms) to any/all tabs.  Try one out ... open a new Form, and drag on a Tab Control.

Basically, it's a way to 'extend' the Form - only keeping the Form a reasonable size - great when you need more real estate on the Form.  Easy to use.
