    Unanswered: how to view the entire content in a field/column

    I have a table with memo fields containing long, descriptive entries. Can I view all the content in a field? (a pop-up window, for instance when the cursor is in the memo field)

    Thanks

    on the gotfocus event you can change the size of the control
    remember sizing is done in twips which 1440 twips = one inch

    change the size back when losing focus of the control

    most textboxes in Access will pop up an edit window with Shift-F2 (includes things on your forms and things in the Properties window)
