I have a report in access and some of the notes on some records have info that need to be expanded underneath them.

I know i can expand all of them and fit the info in, but then i have a report that takes up many pages. Can i expand only the ones that have too much info to fit into one line?

on the attached image you can see that BAM 2381 is cut off on the notes field. i want to that any any other that get cut off to expand underneath. BUT only the ones that need it

Set the Can Grow property for that field/control to Yes.  You must also set the Can Grow property for the report section (Detail Section) to Yes.

No problem - I'm just getting too old to type quickly!
