    can the field size adjust automatically?



      can the field size adjust automatically?


      I was wondering if there is a way to format a field to resize automatically when you type in and have the field stay that size. As it is now, the field is what ever size i make it but if I type more than the size of the field I have to click into it to show everything.

      Thank you

          No, you can't have the field expand the way you want.  You can achieve what you want when you print the record - you can have the print slide up (and across) to remove dead space.  So you could have data entry into a field with a scroll bar, and then print from a dedicated print layout.

          If the amount of data is small, but it's just that the filed is even smaller, a useful compromise sometimes is to have the field's tooltip display all the data when you mouse-over.

          I know they are not exactly what you asked for; they are compromises that sometimes ease the problem in particular circumstances.
