    Hello:

    Is there a code or modification I can make so text can be wrapped in a
    table cell. I've read all topics regarding this and it seems the most
    viable solution is to either use a form or report. The only way I can
    see this working in a form is if I make a form that shows consecutive
    records and is designed to look like a table. The problem with that is,
    when I tried that and set the field's cangrow property to yes, it still
    did not wrap and display correctly.

    The table that I want to alter is actually a subform that is defaulted
    to show as a datasheet.

    Is there any possible way I can manipulate a cell in this datasheet so
    its text can be wrapped?

    Thank you very much for any insight.

    - Dan

    >>The table that I want to alter is actually a subform
    You seem to be mixing terms. You can vertically expand the rows of a
    datasheet by draging it down or click on menu FORMAT - Row Height and adjust.

    Hello Karl,

    Thank you for replying. I tried what you suggested a while back,
    but the person that uses this database didn't like that because it
    showed less records on the screen. To get around this problem, I made a
    text box on the main form that references the note cell of whatever
    record is chosen on the subform. This seems to be a solution right now.
    Thanks again for replying.

    You also could use a Pop-Up form.

    Build a form to display the information and set the Popup property to Yes.
    Use a query as record source that referes to the record in the datasheet for
    criteria. In the field of the datasheet create an double click event of
    macro to open the popup.

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!
