I have a column defined as varchar(500)

I have autovscroll checked and vertical scroll checked.

The user either enters a long string note that word wraps as long as the
column has focus. When the focus leaves to another column the display is
then truncated to one line running off to the side. Is there a way to
prevent this ?

If the user presses enter to create new lines, when data gets to the bottom
of the column it moves down but displays the top part of the characters
typed.

Has anyone seen this chopped character when you hit the bottom of a column ?

I'm using 11.0

Thanks,
Richard
