Reducing white space (padding) of Text Box field control
Yet Access insists on leaving some white space at the right side of the field control, and the data is large enough it is spilling offthe left edge of the field control.
So, in Access, what should the Right Margin / Right Padding properties control?
Is there another property I have not thought to adjust to be able to reduce field white space?
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Regardless of the number of total characters in the field, once imported I need access to add WHITE SPACE (Additional Spacing or Empty Character Space) to reflect that the field has whatever amount of Characters I specify.
So for example, my NAME field needs to have a total of 20 Character Size but names such as Brown and Smith have only 5.I need to add 17 SPACES or WHITE SPACE behind that.
On the copied report, there is no white space between the last record and the page number.
It doesn't affect the printing of the report, but when a user is looking at the report in Access, they can see the white space andI have been asked why it is doing that (really annoying).
I have compared all the Detail, Header and Footer properties and could not identify any differences that may contribute to this.
What do you want to do: Add a bound text box, Add an unbound text box, Add a calculated text box, Understand text box properties.
1) Some text
2) Some text
3) Some text.
Right now I have a text box that has =1 as its control source but I need it with the text it self not in its own text box.
In the text box I want to add a number its control source is =" " & [BasicJobSteps]
The combo box stores values for fieldA in it, but displays fieldB. I need a text box to display fieldB based on the combo box selection.
However, I have enough horizontal real-estate on the report to allow for a second identical text box beside the one that can display the first 4 rows of data.
How do I make the 5th - 8th rows of data appear in the second text box? I don't remember ever having to do this before.
I have a feeling that there may be a control other than a Text Box that will allow for this scenario. But I haven't been able to figure it out yet.
I'm wondering if I will have to tweak the Sql to return the top 4 rows for the left 'column' and rows 5 - 8 for the second one?
The Client Setting for behavior on entering field is go to start of field. That should eliminate my problem, but it doesn't.
The data source the problem control is a Memo field. When this text box was on the main form, a macro for the Enter event set the selection start to 0 and the length to 0. (Actually I shouldn't need this, but I did.) I moved the Notes field to Page 1 of the Tab Control. It's the only field on that page.
Typically I want to edit fields on the 1st page of the tab control. I move through fields on the 1st page using the tab key. When I use the tab key to leave the last field on Page 0, I get to the Notes memo field on the Page 1, but ALL the text is selected ! and the Enter event macro does fire.
