Texts is being truncated but not on all fields


I created a label report (2 columns). The fields used are, Suffix, Contact Name, Company Name, Job Title and Department u2013 simple contact data.

The Department field is the last one and in the report of 78 records the Department field decided not to display the entire field text twice.

I have "Can Grow" set as default on all fields, I checked the margins and label width to ensure the text is not being truncated because of the labels being too wide for the margins. I modified the data in the database by abbreviating certain words and it shows the change but it still truncates after 50 characters. Other times the Department name is 80+ characters and it displays all of the data.

This problem is happening onscreen when I preview the report and also when various users print it. The default printers have not changed.

This one has me stumped. Is this an application bug (if so is there a Service Pack for CR 11.5?) or does it have anything to do with printer drivers in need of update?

Thanks in advance for your help on this puzzle
