Text is cut in memo datatype textbox in Report

Text is cut in memo datatype textbox in Report
Views: 53
Here's another issue with Access 2007. I have a subform that have two group headers; Branch_Name and Commit_ID. The Detail of the subform have four columns; Section (Text), Date Completed(Date), Action Progress (Memo), Action Location (Memo).

The issue that I am having right now is that text that is in the Action Progress field is being cut. I set the Can Grow, Can Shrink of the text box and the Detail as YES and it did not solve the problem.

Then, I set Can Grow, Can Shrink of the text box as YES and NO, respectively, and the Detail as YES for both cases, and it did not solve the problem either.

Determining if textbox.controlsource is Memo or Text datatype

I have an Access 2007 database. I would like to determine (using VBA) if the control source for a particular text box is a Memo or Text data type. I don't see anything specific on the control properties that might indicate it.

Missing text when exporting Access report to Word

I have an Access report which I need to export to Word, to further edit and then for our graphics person to use the text for a brochure. When I export it into Rich Text Format, and then open into Word, occasionally the text is cut off, even though in the Access version all the text is there.
The particular field of concern is Memo data type. What is strange is that some of the ones that are cut off are actually shorter than some that export correctly. In addition, there is another field occasionally cut off, which compiles three different text fields.

Report Text Box

Currently I have a text box in a report and I was wondering if it is possible to change the height, width, top and left values and the size of the text within the text box based on a string in another textbox. The strings can be TTC, DVM, SYF etc. and are not long or complex.

The reason for this is that I insert text files into a memo field which is linked to the text box on the report. The text files are of different sizes and I would like them to be centered on the report. I cannot just centre the text as this messes with its format

Memo field in linked SQL table

We have an SQL table named OITM on a server running SQL server 2008 which has a field named: U_MAX_COM which has a datatype Nvarchar(max) and set to allow nulls.

In access (either 2003 or 2010) we link to this table but often the field shows up in access as a memo field, whilst other times it shows as a text field. We really need it to appear in access as a text field because it needs to be linked to another table/field in a query.
I dont understand why sometimes access sees it as a memo field and sometimes a text field. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? and how to ensure shows as a text field in access?.

(I dont think we can amend the current datatype of the field

Report Memo Field Showing ?? in Boxes Instead of Results

Created an Access report. Within the report/data, I have a memo field. The report is pulling the information (memo field and other data collected) from a query. When I display the report, the result in the memo field is? each in a box with a light blue border.

The text in the memo field is pretty short (so far) and doesn't reach the character limit. I've set the propertyto can grow, and still receiving the ? instead of the results. Not sure where to go from here to get the actual data displaying on the report.

Text to Memo but field size remains unchanged

I am making a database for student reports where I need field size to be more than 255. Googling has led me to an answer that text fields are limited to this amount, but a solution is to use type "memo" instead as the base datatype of the field in the table.

The problem is, that while this does appear (at first) to allow me to type more in, as soon as I leave the field (to typeelsewhere into the form), the length nevertheless snaps back to the shorter length,

I don't see "field size" as part one of the General properties now that it is of type Memo, but this sure seems to be the effect it is using.

I really need this to store the report comments for my classes.

Truncation of Memo fields

In Access tables, Text fields are limited to 255 characters, but Memo fields can handle 64,000 characters (about 8 pages of single-spaced text) - even more programmatically. So why do memo fields sometimes get cut off?Identifies the reasons why Memo fields may be truncated after 255 characters in queries or exports in Microsoft Access.

Memo Field Not Growing on First Page of Report

I have a report which is basically a form letter. The text of the letter is in a memo field, which is set to "can grow". This works fine - on all pages except the first page. On the first page of the report the text displayed in the memo field is limited by the actual height of the text box.

On all other pages the text displayed in the memo field expands appropriately.

The report is set up as follows:

Appending 2003 Memo to 2007 Rich Text Memo

I have a query to append memo field data from an Access 2003 table into a 2007 memo field (with the Text Format set to Rich Text). The carriage returns in 2003 seem to be lost in theprocess as the text appears as one single paragraph in both the form and report display of the 2007 memo field.

How to flow a memo field to another page in a report?

I have a report that comprises 3 memo fields, a text field, and a date field. What I want the report to do is to print the 3 memo fields (which are arranged as side-by-side columns),flowing them as necessary from page to page, and, in the page footer, print the text and the date fields.

I have the text/date fields in the page footer, but they print only on the last page of the report, not on each page. Also (and actually a bigger problem), even though I have CanGrow and CanShrink set to Yes, and the memo fields are sized to the height of about 3 text lines, the memo fields seem to insist on printing their entire length.
