Hi,

I have created a form in MS Word and have encountered a problem. The form does not hold its structure. I have fields within the form which potentially could expand to multiple pages. At the moment though the field will only expand to a maximum of 1 page and one order to do this it seperates from the original structure of the form. Does anyone know a way around this? I used tables to create the structure of the form.

Regards
Tim

Is there a size limit for the data type on the field? I know most text data types limit it to 255~256 characters? Have you thought about Access Forms?

Hi thanks for you help,

the text boxes are set to unlimited length, the problem is to do with the fact that I have used tables to set out the structure of the forms. I ran a trial without the table and this allowed me fill out detail for over a page.

Have you tried breaking the tables apart and then seeing if you still had the issue?

What I mean by this is having one table before another within the document. So basically the whole document is sets of tables instead of one single table.

I have got it now, what I did was create expandable border around the different text fields which still allowed the user to see the structure more clearly. Thanks for your help.

Regards
