    I have an Access report containing mostly memo fields. It is set up very
    simply as such:
    Label
    Field

    Label
    Field
    etc.
    When I view or print the report in Access, it looks great, all the text is
    there. When I export it to Word, however, some text gets cut off, seemingly
    randomly. It is not a matter of field length; one comment may be many lines
    long, and be all there, while the next comment might be only 2 lines long and
    be cut off. It is not any certain field or record. I think it might have
    something to do with how Word interprets the formatting of Access reports.
    On a hunch, I increased the space between each field in the Access report.
    This just caused different text comments to get truncated after exporting to
    Word. Is this a glitch, or is there a fix? Help!
