    Text Box Grow/Shrink (A2K SR1)

    I have a text box on a report that is populated by a memo field in the underying table. The text box is set to Can Grow and Can Shrink. The Detail section of the report that contains the text box is set to Can Grow and Can Shrink. However, the text box refuses to Grow to accommodate large amounts of text. It will expand somewhat to hold about 3 lines of text, but will not expand further. This text box is in the line items section of a Purchase Order report and we frequently generate purchase orders with rather verbose line item descriptions. I'll dig deeper, but I can't find anything that's causing this to happen. As always, thanks for the help.

    Is there by chance a sub-report that contains the line items on the report?

    I discovered the problem. The box had been working properly until a user decided to paste text from an e-mail message into it. Doing so, the box refused to grow to accommodate the text. However, the box grows just fine when I paste text from a Word document into it. Strange behavior!
