Text in label or text box does not justify / Distribute on last line.
I want justified blocks of text but the last line always spreads across the
box, no matter which combination I use. Thanks !

This is a bug/feature of the Distribute property. Unfortuntaley there is
no fix for this issue.
There are several other options on my site:

1) For Reports only:
http://www.lebans.com/justidirect.htm
JustiDirect.zip is a database containing Functions to produce fully
justified text within standard TextBox controls on your Reports.
Allows a standard Access TextBox, bound to a Memo field to not only
produce fully justified text, but use the CanGrow/CanShrink properties
as well.

2) The Justify ActiveX control for Forms or Reports here:
http://www.lebans.com/xjustifytext.htm
Produce Fully Justified Text. Bind this control to your Memo field to
create professional looking reports! This is an ActiveX control that can
act as a Label or TextBox. This control has a RecordSource just like a
normal Access TextBox so it can be bound to a field or contain a
calculated expression. Developed for Microsoft Access97.
Requires VB6 Runtime files.


3) The RTF ActiveX control for Forms or Reports here:
http://www.lebans.com/richtext.htm
RTF2 control is an ActiveX RTF solution written in VC++. The RTF2
control is a complete editing/printing solution for Access 97 or higher.
Autosizing of the RTF2 control is supported for A2K or higher.

If you want to have your text behave properly in a text box in Microsoft Access, you need to convert it from Plain Text to Rich Text.

You need to change it as a property of that field in the table first, then you can change the 'data' property from 'Plain Text' to 'Rich Text' of all your relevant textboxes that display that (now Rich Text) table data.

This will mean that you can change the font of different text within a single text box as well as having the last line of your text set to "Distribute" behaving normally.
