trying to align shifting text boxes

my report has a number of columns and in 2 of them are a quantity of text 
boxes stacked vertically on top of each other

in a perfect world, the data would stack INDEPENDANTLY in each column 
(without aligning across the columns)
ex:      COLUMN 1        COLUMN 2
          textbox 1a              texbox 2a
          textbox 1a              texbox 2b
          textbox 1b              texbox 2b
          textbox 1c              texbox 2c

not like this:
ex:      COLUMN 1        COLUMN 2
          textbox 1a              texbox 2a
          textbox 1a
          textbox 1b              texbox 2b
                                        texbox 2b
          textbox 1c              texbox 2c

my question is 2:
         1 -  is the above formatting possible?
         2 -  (2) of my textboxes -(1) in column 1 and (1) in column 2 
(neither are the first in the column
                have the exact same top of box position, and the same height 
                yet the TB in col 2 is being forced to start in alignment 
with the bottom of the TB in col 1
                - any thoughts on why this is happening?

many thanks in advnce,

Text wrap in merged cells
Is there a way to get text to wrap in cells that have been merged. Example: A2:C2 are merged cells to get the width needed. Text is placed in A2 that is greater length than the merged cells. I would like the text to wrap but can not seem to get that to happen if cells have been merged. Hi Chuck If the merged cells are A1:C1 and your text is longer than the merged cells, then try merging cells A1:C2 and also ticking the wrap cells, and the unseen text will apper on row 2.

Trying to clear up Received but not invoiced report
I am trying to clean up the received not invoiced items. The problem began with entering a purchase order and then not matching the invoice to the items received agaisnt the purchase order. SO we thought that doing a returned transaction entery would solve the problem. The only thing is now the return shows up on our Received/ Not invoiced report. And the report is becoming a huge mess and difficult to use. What is the best way to clear up items that have been received but were not matched and already paid through the invoice entery?

Text in column causing SUMPRODUCT error
Greegings. I have a SUMPRODUCT formula that is having errors when one of the columns has text instead of a NULL or a number. If I delete the text cells in that column it works as desired. I'll give a simple example. Suppose I have the following in A1:B6.... a 1 a 2 a abc b 1 b 1 a 2 And I need this... =SUMPRODUCT(($A$1:$A$6="a")*($B$1:$B$6)) It errors out until I delete the "abc" in cell B3, then it works as desired. I tried to replace the "abc" with a 0 by trying this... =IF(ISNUMBER(B3)=FALSE,0,B3) And it works for that pa...

OnCtlColor, static text and read-only edit controls
Hi, I want to do something really simple (!) which is to change the background color of a dialog. I've added OnCtlColor() which works - except- it doesn't change the background color for static text controls or for read-only edit controls. So, for the static text I subclassed CStatic and made the text a control variable and that works, but is that the only way? I ask because I've got nearly 50 static text boxes and I'm lazy enough to want to avoid creating 50 IDs and 50 variables if I can help it. Regarding the read-only edit controls, I'm not sure what to do there. I ...

Text Box Calculation Formula
SpreadCred InsideSpread LeftMain RightMain I have a text box (SpreadCred) that needs to be calculated/populated by a combination of factors. 1. SpreadCred should populate off of the text box - InsideSpread. 2. The value in SpreadCred can not be greater than text box - RightMain nor text box - LeftMain. If it is bigger than either number, it will max out at the larger of the two. Thanks for your time. How this is done depends a little on whether the value will respond to user input or to previously-entered data. This could be done with a nested IIf, but is really a ...
