    Report field heights equalized (A2k3 SP2)

    Hi All,
    In a report, how can I make the field heights equal across a record? Each textbox has its Border Style set to "solid" and Width set to "1pt". All relevant controls are set to "Can Grow/Can Shrink".
    If the field has no data, the field height remains at its' default size. If the field does have data, the height grows to fit the data.
    How can I make the "no data" textbox have the same height as the "has data" textbox.
    Thanks.

    You can't. Instead, make the borders of the text boxes transparent. Place a horizontal line below the text boxes. The line will be pushed down automatically to stay below the tallest text box.
    If you also want vertical lines between the text boxes, you can use code to draw those lines. See the thread starting at <post:=143,590>post 143,590</post:>.

    Thanks Hans,
    Just before I checked back to the forum, I found this: Search result, but somehow missed the Lounge thread you referenced, when searching here.
    Thank you.
