Text is cut in memo datatype textbox in Report

Text is cut in memo datatype textbox in Report
Views: 59
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

Determining if textbox.controlsource is Memo or Text datatype Icon
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

Missing text when exporting Access report to Word Icon
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 Memo Field Showing ?? in Boxes Instead of Results

Report Memo Field Showing ?? in Boxes Instead of Results Icon
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

Text to Memo but field size remains unchanged Icon
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

Truncation of Memo fields Icon
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

Memo Field Not Growing on First Page of Report Icon
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:

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?

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

Contents of Memo field chopped off

Contents of Memo field chopped off Icon
I have a database with a number of memo fields on a report. Depending on the text in these fields sometimes the text on the right-hand side of the memo fields will get chopped off. Refer toattached PNG file for an example.

We have tried altering the size of the memo field with no resolution to the problem.

We have looked at the property of the memo field on the report and modified setting for 'Can Grow', 'Can Shrink', margin settings, text size and alignment. None of these modifications resolved the issue either.

I have also tried deleting the field from the form and re-adding. Same result (or lack thereof).
 

rich text memo field

rich text memo field Icon
Creating a report. In a label I want to be able to format certain words. I've created a rich text memo field in the table.

Do I need to put the text into the table and drag onto the report design form or. Can I just select the empty memo field from the table and place on report then type in the text? The formatting option doesn't seem to work either way. It's formatting the entire box. All places are set up for rich text.
