    Cool Auto Adjusting Field Height

    This question is for Access 2003.

    I have a report that is used to generate maintenance lists and to act as a checklist list for our fleet section. Each row on the report contains detail from six fields provided to the report from a query.

    For most rows in the report the height property for the six fields are the same, based on the fact that the data value in the fields does not force the field to grow.

    However in some cases the description field can have up to 200 characters and will force the field to be higher than the other five fields in the same row (refer to attached screen shot).

    I was wondering if there is a way that I can tell the fields to grow to the same height as the tallest field.

    I just tested some VBA code attempting to accomplish and it didn't work. I don't know any way to do this.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
