    Unanswered: Report text boxes

    I have a report where the end result I really want it to look like a basic excel spreadsheet output. Each record has different heights to them do to a memo field that is sometimes large, sometimes small. Is there a way to get all the other text boxes to grow to the maximum height of that record?

    Never tried it, but you might like to try setting the Height property of the text boxes to the height of the memo field using VBA in the OnFormat of the detail section.

    I'm not much of a MS Access guru. Don't know how to set up VB in Access. I'm more of an Excel guru. Problem with Excel is that it maxes out on word wrap. Need Access so I can get the whole text of these large fields.
