Default Word wrap in a drop down menu of a form ?

Is there any way to wrap the words in a form drop down menu? I have 2
entries: the first one is a small word and the second one is a large phrase.
The drop down menu is inside a small table cell. If the phrase is the answer,
the phrase is cutted off due to small cell length. I want to wrap the phrase
inside the cell by an automatic change of the cell height (like a common
table).

Thanks

No, there is no way of doing that. The only thing that I can think of is
that you limit what is in the dropdown formfield and then run a macro on
exit from it that determines what item was selected and if appropriate,
inserts into the cell of the table the balance of the text on a new line.
