losing text in memo field when double-spacing - Microsoft Access

Hi, I'm working in Access 2000 with a db that has a lot of text. When I change the line spacing to .1" (properties box, format tab) in memo fields, I lose the last few lines of text. This happens on-screen in forms, in reports and in printing out reports. BTW, I'm using times new roman. Any insights? Jocelyn....

    Default Re: losing text in memo field when double-spacing

    Access does not properly calculate in the LineSpacing property within a
    CanGrow situation. For a workaround see:
    [url]http://www.lebans.com/linespacing.htm[/url]
    LineSpacingA2K.zip is a database containing a function to allow the
    LineSpacing property to function within a CanGrow/CanShrink environment.
    Access 2000 only!
