    Unanswered: Form Opens in Middle of Form

    I have a form that is quite large and instead of opening at the top it opens in the middle. Is there anyway to get the form to open at the top?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I believe Access will try and show the control with the initial focus. Is that control in the middle of the form?

    I believe there is a form property called AutoCenter
    That might have an effect

    George, I believe the Auto Center refers to where the form is placed within the Access window, that what shows on the form itself.

    Thank you

    Thanks for your help on this one... All I had to do was set the tab stop to 0 for the first control on the form.

    I think you should reset the default control of your form.
