    Aligning Text to Bottom in Report Datafield (2002)

    I have a field I've made "taller" to accommodate wrapping of data. I would like to align the data to the bottom of the field, but when I right click the field and select "alignment", all the options are greyed out.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    The Align option on the shortcut menu is to align the control, not its contents. There is a textalign property of controls but it doesn't allow you control vertical alignment, only horizontal.

    You could only do this in code by setting the TopMargin property. It would be tricky to work out what to set it to though.

    Thank you for this info. As you've probably deduced if you've read anything of what I've put poor Charlotte through, I'm not quite ready for code yet! Can make Excel tap dance, bake cookies, and sing the Star Spangled Banner in 47 different languages, but I only know enough Access to be dangerous, and even less Word, I'm afraid. Sigh...

    It was fun figuring out what I managed to figure out with Charlotte's help, though.

    Goodnight.
