    Unanswered: On open scroll bar defaults to middle of form

    I have a continuous form in which the form is wider than the window and has both scroll bars. I recently copied the form and modified the new copy. I mostly just changed the layout of the controls. Now when opened, it defaults to the middle of the form and users have to scroll to the left to see the most important info. It didn't do this before. Is there a way to change this?

    Thanks,

    When you moved the controls, you probably changed the order you want the controls to be accessed. Check the Tab Order property of each control in the Property Sheet, and make the top-left control (or whichever one) tab order 0 so it will automatically get the focus on opening the form. Then change all the other tab orders to conform to the new layout of the form.

    Hope this helps,
