    Breaking Field Names (97)

    Just a quick question - is there any way to make a field name display on more than one line when viewing a table? I know that you can modify the display for reports, but it would be handy to be able to do it in tables as well.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe there is - at least I don't know of a way. To do that you need to switch to a report or a form.

    The column heading in a table, whether field name or caption, gets one line. Period. So the answer is no. Besides, your users shouldn't be seeing the tables themselves, so window dressing a table is largely a waste of time.

    Thanks, folks, that's what I figured. It's only going to be used by 4-5 people, and edited by 1 or 2, so I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible.
