I have a database that I want to make a change to.  I have a box where people can add a record of their conversation.  Everything is viewable on the screen.  I want to change it so that it just shows a snippet of the note left. Then you when you click on the line that has the truncated note it pops up a box in which has the full note.  How do you do this in microsoft access?

Private Sub Note_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdZoomBox
End Sub

1) Resize your notes sub-form to display a single row for each record
2) Resize your notes field to display the desired number of characters.
3) Use the Double-Click Event of your notes field to open another form that displays the entire contents of the notes field.  You can open this form with a filter set to the unique id of the current notes record.

I thought when I was marking the solution I could mark two answers.   So really it marked the wrong one.  Rey Obrero's answer was the ultimate solution with some of the others providing added support.  Thank you everyone.  I'd like to give credit but its not letting me.
