Hi All

Having had some help from a few of you last week on storing rich text, I am now further along with my RichText requirement.

I have managed to add the rich text to the database, I now want to print a listing 

The database table essentially has the date and then a field notes for the notes about the delivery.

So i created a free form datawindow and placed the date field and the notes field in the detail. Set the notes field to autosize height and the band to autosize height

However - it doesn't, I retrieve the data and only get the information in the notes that fits with in the box ( size as at design time ) - its not autosizing.

I must be missing something - any help as usual is greatly appreciated.

thanks andrew


I am using Pb2019 - have not yet upgraded to later versions

I have resolved this.

Having closed the datawindow and pb completely and gone back into it, it worked 

This happens occasionally when the preview window does not respond you make changes, however weirdly in this case it was responding to all but these autoresize
