    Report Section Grow/Shrink (2002 SP-2)

    In a report (Detail Section), I have three memos. The Detail Section properties are set to Can Grow and Can Shrink. All three memos are also set to Can Grow and Can Shrink. There is Conditional Formatting for each of the memos (based on "Is Not Null"). I'm getting some pretty strange results. Depending on the number of characters in the memo, the report displays either just the first line of the memo, or two or more lines if there's enough characters. In most cases, the entire memo is not displayed; yet, if there is only a minimal entry, that entire line is displayed. Hmmm. . .

    Make sure that there is no vertical overlap between the text boxes bound to the memo fields; that would disable the Can Grow setting.

    That was it Hans! While I thought they were only "butted" up against each other (no overlap), they apparently were close enough to make the difference. I moved them slightly and the problem is resolved.
