    Default Memo field not allowing growth in reports

    I have several reports where the memo field will not allow growth and under properties, that option is greyed out. First time I have encountered this with Alpha Five products and can't get it fixed. I have three memo fields in the data base that contain data associated with the record. Fairly straight forward report with about 10 fields per record and one linked child database that merely assocaites extra page references to the record.
    Any ides out there? Thanks!

    I think you need to provide a sample database for us to look at because as the image below shows, greyed out in properties does not keep a memo field from expanding. My guess is the problem has something to do with the specifics of your layout but without being able to look at it I won't guess about it.

    Got it fixed by eliminating the second memo field.

    I have run into this a number of times and by deleting and re-adding the field on the report it resolved the issue for me.

    I believe in my case the issue was caused by copying the memo field from a form to a report while desgning the report rather than pulling it from the DragDrop list. I originally was doing this to save me some time (did not have to ungroup, size, etc.) although it ended up causing wierd issues like this one.
