    Using A2003. The report has a textbox bound to a memo field, and is used for free-form text. The textbox is set to CanGrow = TRUE, however, it's not growing as required because it's in the Page Header, which has a pre-determined height. If I manually increase the header height, then the textbox grows as required to accommodate the largest textbox contents.

    How can I make the header grow as required? I suppose I could evaluate the length of the memo field and adjust the header size accordingly when the form is opened, but I wondered whether there's anything more automagic.

    You could create a dummy grouping level, set the Repeat Section property of the group header to Yes as well as the Can Grow property, and place the text box in the group header.

    A dummy group could be based on an expression such as =1
