    Text Form Field in a table (Word97)

    Can anyone tell me why when I put a text form field in a table cell, sometimes entering a lot of text will fit into the table cell correctly and wrap before the right hand edge, and sometimes the text seems to run UNDER the right hand edge of the cell for a while before it wraps? See the examples in the zip file, Lounge.doc shows the overrun, but Lounge2.doc wraps correctly! What's the difference, and how can I correct it?

    Thanks.

    In the first cell of the table in Lounge.doc, the right indent is set to a negative number. This causes text to run past the border. If you set the right indent to 0 or a small positive number, your problem should vanish.

    Thanks Hans! I just knew it had to be something very simple! I just can't think how all my tables in one particular document have this negative right ident, though. Oh well. Thanks again.
