Hi, sorry if this is covered somewhere but I can't find it. I have created a report using the report builder and I have a text box called "description" that is linked to a field in a query. How can I make the printed text box use multi lines as needed. As it is now I have to size my text box for two lines of text and so everything is double spaced on the report. I would like to use a single line but have the box grow as needed for multi lines. Now if I have a single line text box a red arrow shows on the report to say there are more lines of text. Clear as mud? Thank you for any help!

Hello

As far I knew you can not do what you want in a report. Maybe you can follow a workaround and use a normal writer document. When you open a normal writer document and press F4 then you can insert in several ways data from a database.
