When printing out long fields within a form generated in Alpha 5 v1.02, I'm having problems with the wordwrap function truncating words at the field window right hand limit. The same field contents wordwraps properly when viewing the form on the monitor screen.

I'm using a Brother HL630 laser printer. This problem is only occuring in Alpha 5 v1.02. A similiar form design done in MS Access97 prints just fine, complete with proper wordwrap function, etc.

Thus, I must conclude that the version of Alpha 5 I'm running may have a problem with wordwrap, and laser printer form rendering.

Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks for any help in advance.

I don't recall every having any problem with this on HP Laserjets or on my Canon Bubblejets. As for the Brother printers, I've never used one.
