Can Shrink - Access 2000 vs. Access 2003

P: n/a
Ann
I have an Access 2000 database with 4 memo fields in it named memo1
memo2 memo3 and memo4. Some fields have data in them and some don't. If
I create a report and put the 4 fields (with no labels) in the detail
section, keeping their height tall enough for one line of text and
placing memo1 at the top of the section and memo2 directly underneath
memo1 and memo3 directly under memo2 and memo4 directly under memo3,
and make the 'Can Grow' and 'Can Shrink' properties both equal to 'Yes'
for the 4 controls, and make the 'Can Grow' and 'Can Shrink' properties
of the Detail section equal to 'Yes' - I get what I expect - text with
no blank lines.

If I open the file in Access 2003, the report still looks fine.

My problem is that if I go through the same procedure of creating a
report with the same database while in Access 2003, I get blank lines
and I can't figure out what to change so that I don't get the blank
lines. If I compare the properties of the report created in Access 2000
to the report created in Access 2003, they look the same to me.
Any insights?

Thanks!

Ann
