Dynamic Text - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I have a table set up that will have a row of text drawn from a database. That text is very long - memo field. When I view the page the dynamic text forces the table to grow off the page instead of wrapping around within the cell. Can someone give me some pointers on how to get dynamic text to wrap in a table cell? I have looked everywhere and I cannot find an answer. Please help. Regards, Sid...

    Default Dynamic Text

    I have a table set up that will have a row of text drawn from a database.
    That text is very long - memo field. When I view the page the dynamic text
    forces the table to grow off the page instead of wrapping around within the
    cell.

    Can someone give me some pointers on how to get dynamic text to wrap in a
    table cell?

    I have looked everywhere and I cannot find an answer.

    Please help.

    Regards,

    If you specify a size for the table cell and do not check the 'no wrap'
    property, the text should wrap.

    It will only wrap if there are word breaks, or hyphens in the text
    that will allow it to. If the table is expanding to greater than the
    browser width, that would appear to not be the case.

    Thanks Guys.

    I had no breaks in the text for testing. Put them in and all is well. Thank
    you all for your help.
