Microsoft access - Can you word wrap in a table Your help would be appreciate.

A table in access is for storing data. I can't understand why you want to word wrap in the table. One way I suppose would to make the field yah long and yah high, but why do that? Your table is usually displayed threw form, so set the text box to a relevant size.

Maybe Soodanim meant auto fit text ... i guess it then may act like word wrap... sorry i don't use Access (or at least i try not to where at all possible)

Sexylady (or at least i try not to where at all pos)...other words you really don't understand, and know anything about it. Why post on a subject you know nothing or even understand anything of or about the mechanics of.

Hi I have created a database of clients for a sales rep but he has requested I fill in a column with directions. This can take up a lot of room so had hoped rather than have to type it up in Excel I could do it in Access as it has so many added features to it. That why I wondered about word wrap

Haha totally misread the question might have something to do with the fact that I hadn't slept since 7am yesterday when I posted oopps

Try Alt enter but you should set up a memo field column which auto wraps words

Fill in a colomn with directions I take it you mean a help file type thing. This can be done by constructing a help file and attaching each section of it to the appropiate part. Or they can access it by pressing F1. You could also add text explaining what to do everytime they move the cursor over any section, it pops up. Can be annoying tho.
