    I'm trying to wrap text in Access cells like can be done in Excell. Is this
    possible?? If not, how can I make information appear on two lines in one
    cell??

    Jamie,
    Not a big deal but... in Access, data is displayed in fields, not "cells".
    Just increase the height of any text control or label in order to display the "wrapped"
    multiline data.
    ex.
    If your text control or label is one font high, you might see this...
    |This is a ve|

    If you increase the Height of that control, you'll see...
    |This is a |
    |very long |
    |string |

    Also make sure you select the "shrink text" option in the properties menu
    under format. That way, changing the feild size will only affect the wrapped
    text and not the formatting of the rest of the data. Maybe you already knew
    that.
