Not all data printing in report text box - A2K

P: n/a
I've got an unbound text box on a subreport that doesn't display all
it's data. At most the data may be 50 words long. The text box is 2"
wide and only enough text to fill the width once is printed. I
verified thru debug that all of the data is getting put into the text
box. Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks for any help or advice.

Check to see if the textbox. maybe the grouping band too, can grow in
the property sheet.

Both "Can Grow" properties are set to Yes.

I created 2 test tables, made a memo field filled with junk chars,
created a report then subreport and it worked fine. The subreport was
set to Grow=Yes on the main report, and the same for the text field and
detail band it was in.

You are using an unbound textbox.

I was thinking perhaps the subreport, on the main report, isn't large
enough. Resize it larger for testing purposes and make sure the
subreport can grow too besides the fields/group bands in the subreport.

I'm not sure how you are filling in the unbound text box with data. If
calculated, do you do something like
=FillThisBox()
in the control source and then

Private FUnction FillThisBox()
FillThisBox = "This comes from FillThisBox"
ENd Function

Of course, your function would be different.
