Synchronize Text Boxes in a Row

P: n/a
I have a form with several fields in-line in the detail. I am using the
borders of each text box to form a grid. The resultant output resembles a
spreadsheet. The problem I'm having is that in the text in one field is
too long for the text box to display, the box expands vertically (it's set
to "can grow"). This would be ok if the adjacent cells would expand as
well so that the borders still line up. Instead, the single box grows to
two lines but rest remain as one line. I guess what I want to do is to
somehow link all of the text boxes in the row so that they all expand
together. Can that be done?
