    String length (Access97)

    I have a combo box that once a value is picked, a label is filled with a descritpion of the item in the combo box. The description is being pulled from the table where the value is stored. There are two labels on the form. What do I need to do to make it where what doesnt fit in the first label, will continue in the second label? The labels are 20 characters in length. I think it is something to do with string length, but I am not for sure.

    Why don't you make the first label wider or higher? A label will automatically wrap the text to multiple lines if it is too long to fit in one line. You can experiment with the height you need to accomodate the longest text.
