    There are no "cells" in Access. That is a spreadsheet concept. Access is a
    database that has columns (fields) and rows (records). You should never work
    directly in the tables, although you can work in datasheet view in a form. A
    data in a field in a form is represented usually with a control, which can
    be a textbox, combobox, etc.

    Now to more directly answer your question. A textbox can display multiple
    rows of data (1 record). You can turn on text wrapping by adding a vertical
    scrollbar from the property sheet, or you can use the shift + enter or ctrl
    + enter key combinations or VBA code to add a carriage return to the data.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
