I have a memo field that exceeds the amount of text that may fit on one page in L.O. Base 5.2. While I make the field very large in the design, when I view the report it only fits on one page and the text is cut off. Is there any way to fix this. Thank you for your help. For the moment I have divided my memo file in two parts that fit on separate pages as that is the best solution I could find.

To my knowledge there is no way to have the data in one field split between two pages. You can change the page size to accommodate the larger field using Format->Page from the menu then expand the field so all data is displayed. If this is done and the report actually needs to be printed, your printer would need to use this larger paper size, otherwise you end up with the lower portion cut off.
