    Unanswered: Form In MSA2K paints strangely

    My client's form mashes (tecnical term meaning that adjacent textboxes look like a textbox train wreck) the input controls. On my machine, the form always looks fine. I am running 2003/xp and the client runs 2k/2k respectively.

    You can see the screen painting itself as you scroll (wheel or otherwise).

    I just realized that they use the sandstone background. Maybe that's it. I will try to change the form background to a less memory intensive setting and will post if that works.

    I hope that an upgrade isn't the answer since this is a not-so-good-funded research study that only tries to help pregnant women to stop smoking.

    Have you tried the ol "compact and repair" trick? Missing any references? Try exporting in 2k format?

    I love the "compact and repair" solution. It solves so many problems! I'll report back if that works.

    Indeed it does. Compact and repair is to Access what rebooting is to most other computer issues.

    It was the sandstone. Sorry about the late reply. Busy trying to earn the benjamins!
