    Text cut-off in text boxes (report) (2003)

    I have two text boxes that display data from memo fields from the source table. Both text boxes cut off text at the right edge of the box. Properties for both text boxes is set to Can Grow: Yes, so the text does wrap. The page has 0.5" left and right margins. The boxes sit adjacent to each other; one is at the right edge of the page. The text appears cut-off on the screen, and it prints the same way.

    I searched this forum and found another user who had the same issue back in 2005. She solved the problem by increasing the right margin of the text box itself from 0" to 0.1". Well, I tried 0.1", 0.15", and even 0.2", but the problem persists. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried using a different font, and/or a different font size?

    Good suggestion, Hans! I changed the font from Times New Roman 9 pt to Bookman Old Style 9 pt. That helped, but I still saw a few instances where text was cut off. I reduced the font size to 8 pt, and that seemed to do the trick. Bookman Old Style is a better looking font, too! Thank you!
