Layout: Can text be justified when changing field size?

Hi,

 

I have a couple of columns in Excel to import into my database. Each cell in the column has a couple of hundred characters in. I have changed the field settings accordingly but each time I import, the text appears on only one line.

 

My aim is to be able to change the size of the field and have the text change its justification automatically so that it reads over several lines rather than one. Is this something I can do in Act!, something I should do in Excel, or something I can't actually do?

 

Thanks,

You would have to use a memo field to have it word wrap. regular fileds will stay on one line.

"word wrap" that's the phrase I was searching for!

 

Worked perfectly, thanks.
