ComboBox text Limit
Hi all you Experts
I need to create a dropdown list in a form field that will allow users to
choose from the entries that are pre-populated. As my list is going to be
longer than 25 entries I have used a Userform with a combo box.
As far as I can tell, each entry in the list is limited to 50 characters,
but some of my choices will need to be double this length. Is there any way
of using VBA code to increase the number of characters available?
Thanks in advance of help.
The limit maybe 255 characters, but it is definitely not 50.
Hope this helps.
i have resently upgraded from publisher 98 to 2003 and i am unable to get the
same quality text. how do i improve the quality of the texts?
How does the text look when you print? Do you have a flat screen monitor? Microsoft
PowerToys has included the Clear Type Tuner, it will improve how text looks on your
screen. It is a free download.
An upgraded video driver might help too. Go to the manufacturer's web site and look
If the text does not print right, a printer driver upgrade could be the solution.

You can try an expression like:
This depends on the consistency of your data values.

I'm trying to use a textbox control a TextFormat of RTF. Whenever I
input text from the body of an email into this box, the line returns
disappear and I end up with one big long paragraph. For instance,
text that looks like this in an Outlook email:
"See the dog run."
"See the cat watch."
looks like this:
"See the dog run.""See the cat watch."
Any suggestions on how this can be corrected?
A standard Access text box doesn't support RTF. You'll need to use an
ActiveX control such as this:
I am trying to create a series of text sets, eg. aaa-aaz, aab-abz, but find that I cannot autofill unless the series contains numbers or dates. Can any one suggest a simple answer for this as I am not an experienced user of EXCEL. It seems that filling in each series individually is the answer but it's a lot from aaa to zzz. Would be greatful for any assistance. Cheers

It's the work of a second to right button it and specify "Display as HTML"

I have enabled full text indexing on Exchange 2003 with the purpose of being

Hi everyone, thanks for being so helpful.
I'm working on a report and included is a text box whose control
source is from the table I've queried. The actual data from the table
isn't showing up on the report when I open it, though. And it's only
this text field. Other text fields work fine and my date fields also
show up fine.
I've made sure that I included this column in the query, but nothing I
do makes the data appear.
Set the control's border to red, do you see this in preview?
What section of the report contains the control?
