I am not able to view full comments in the table but am whenever I identify a feature in the identify window. It is not due to the length of characters.

Kyle,

   Is there a line return/carriage return after the "Connections Changed" portion of the string?

Kyle,

   When the comment was entered was a line return (i.e. Enter key pressed) after the "Connections Changed" portion of the string?

Unfortunately I was not the one who created the comment so that could be the case. The vendor could have done that to possibly clean up the comment section but I would like to have that information in my table. Is there anything to be done on my end that could make this possible?

I would experiment on a sample and use a python expression emulating the following

a = "a line \n with another line"

print(a)
a line
with another line

b = a.replace("\\","")

print(b)
a line
with another line

this could be done in the field calculator as a simple expression with the python parser

!YourField!.replace("\\", "")

did I mention a sample, test file
