anyway to dynamically resize text fields to shrink or grow depending on

the amount of text passed in to the form?

let's say I have a form with 10 text boxes & only 7 fit on the first page when all 1000 chars are entered.

But, if only 100 chars are entered, is there a way to have the 3 remaining boxes flow back up to the first page?

I think it is pretty much posible. There are options in "layout tab " like expand to fit both for width and height. Depending on ur requirment you can select that.

Select the text field on your form

On the object tab click on the "field" tab

Check the "Allow multiple lines" box and set your desired property values.

On the "layout" Tab, select "expand to fit" in the dimension that you want ( width and/or height)

From the hierachy, right click on your textfield and select "wrap in subform"

Select your new subform that just created. On the "Object" tab, select "subform" tab.

Choose "flow content" for type. Select "top to bottom" for flow direction.

On the "layout" Tab, select "auto-fit" for both height and width.

Now it should work for you.
