Expanding textbox in word

Is there a way to put a text box in the middle of a Microsoft word document that expands as you type more information in it? Basically as I type more paragraphs in the text box it will push whatever paragraphs below the text box further down the page. Hope that makes sense. Thank you.

When you insert the textbox, right-click, select wrap text - top and bottom:

Under format textbox, make sure that the Resize AutoShape to fit text is selected.

When I use that it expands only to the rest of the current page and does not go any further.  Is there anything I am doing wrong?
Sam JacobsDirector of Technology Development, IPMCommented:
You need to:
- create another blank textbox on the next page
- click back inside the first textbox
- click Format on the menu
- click Create Link under Text
Create-Link.jpg- click in the second text box, and the overflow will now flow into it.
- repeat with another text box, if necessary.

Another option would be to use a single cell table. The table can be aligned differently to the surrounding text and can be formatted in whatever fashion you want and will flow over multiple pages.
