    Hello to you,

    I'm using VB6 SP6 connected to MS-ACCESS 2000 via ADO
    I'm using Active Reports 2.0 Pro with the latest patches.

    My problems is :
    Let says : I 'd table named "customer", its contains field named "address" is memo field.

    The User can entry many lines into address (let says they entered more than 5 rows).

    When rendered to the active report :
    I want the address field showing only 4 rows.

    I created "customer.rpx" files
    I set address's "can grow" to "true"
    but the address showing all rows as entered into customer table.

    But I just want to showing only 4 rows

    Please help & thanks in advance
    Steven

    I would suggest you try setting your control(s) to the max size desired, in this case 4 lines, then setting CanGrow to False and CanShrink to True (provided you want to display less than 4 if less than 4 were entered).
