How do you stop long entires in databases changing the width of your pages?

What i mean is if i have a field in an access database and its say a description of something and is many characters long, like a page of text - how do you make it go on more than one line and not just be a constant string of text on the same line?

help please!

how do you display the value?
If it's inside a table or div, then you can set the width of the containing pageelement so that the text gets wrapped.

<table width="100">
<tr>
<td>
<%=objRS("longdescription")%></td>
</tr>

should be ok?
