Please provide a tool to create self adjusting boxes in a Report. E.g: Invoice and Quotation type of reports
We develop CRM applications which has one major function of creating OFFERS/QUOTATIONS & Invoices which are emailed directly to a customer.
As you are aware such type of a report is directly based on a Master/Detail table format. We need a tool in the report to create self adjusting boxes for the details section of the report. So as the list of products increment in the details section the box automatically justifies itself without losing its look n feel. Please also be aware that I'm not speaking of the "Arrange" menu which gets activated in the Reports Layout or Design View.
The feature for creating boxes is programatically possible in FoxPro/Dbase databases but Access being a Visual RAD tool doesn't have this facility for a developer. If you could think of providing us developers such a tool it will make our report look more professional and we can match the exact requirement[s] of the Government Forms which our Customers desire for their submissions to the council.
Thank you in advance.

aren't you just talking about text boxes in an access report with text boxes that "can grow" and "can shrink?" This, a property of ms access text boxes in the "Format" tab?

Surely a textbox's CanGrow property provides this functionality?
