Hi Harvey,

Can anyone help me to create a list report which has one field that may
expand to more that one text line? Most lines of the report in the
detail report section are just one line deep. However, a few fields may
wrap round to more than on line, so the height of the corresponding text
box needs to be expandable and, of course, the height of the detail
section as well. (i.e. similarly to MS Access - sorry, I'll wash my
mouth out ;-)).

When you say "expand to more than one text line", what exactly do you mean ?

I thought that text/memo field data was wrapped automatically in the
report builder and the section expanded as a consequence ?

You might be better off using the mailmerge functionality of Writer
instead of the Report Builder, just a thought.


I am fetching records from a query and putting them in various text
boxes in the 'detail' section of a report. Two fields of each record
may, however, contain more text than fit into the corresponding text box
and would need to be printed on more than one line. Unfortunately, I do
not know how to the change the text box height dynamically to allow the
full text of the record field to be displayed. Obviously, if that were
somehow possible, also the height of the 'detail' section would have to
be increased for that record (and both would have to be reset for the
next record). The height of a text box (in the properties table) is
'fixed' and I can find no attribute that would make a text box
'expandable' as needed for the above.  Where can I do that?
