Sub-Report text field truncates data at 255 characters with can grow = "Yes"

Sub-Report text field truncates data at 255 characters with can grow = "Yes"

Sub-Report text field truncates data at 255 characters with can grow = "Yes"

(OP)
I have an access report that contains several sub reports. In one of the sub reports, i have noticed two fields which have "can grow" set to yes are that are truncating the text at 255 characters on a memo field. I thought this would display the full field's data.

RE: Sub-Report text field truncates data at 255 characters with can grow = "Yes"

(OP)
I solved this by....

Choose First instead of Group By under the memo field. The aggregation is still preformed on other fields from the table, but not on the memo, so Access can return the full memo.

The field name changes (e.g. FirstOfMyMemo), so change the name and Control Source of any text boxes on forms/reports.
