resize only a record in a continuous form

P: n/a
I have a continuous form wich contains all the rows of an invoice.
Each row of the invoice is a record of a table rows.
I would like to let the user insert a note(a comment) to a selected row.
So this row selected is taller than the other to place into the row a
control for the comment
Is this possibile with continuous form?

No. The Height of the Detail section affects all rows.

An alternative is to place the Comment text box in the Form Footer section.
This shows the comment only for the row selected in the detail section. You
add an indicator in the detail section to show which rows have a comment,
with a text box that has these properties:
Control Source =([Comment] Is Not Null)
Format "";
Font Name Wingdings
To enter the last character for the Format string, hold down the Alt key and
type 0247 on the numeric keypad.
