[Solved] Word Wrap in Form

Postby obnoxious_strawberry » Thu Sep 19, 2019 3:52 am

Hello Friends,

I am a novice at creating databases but when my Aunt asked me to create a database for her sewing pattern collection I could not say no. I have created a table and form and both seem to be working correctly. However, I am having some difficulty with having the text wrap in a field. I have attached a picture of the issue. Any insights and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Open the form in the Edit/Design mode.
<Ctrl> Click on the text box control that holds Pattern Description to select it then right click and select Control to open the Properties: Text Box dialog.
On the General tab scroll down to Text type and change it from Single-line to Multi-line.
