    There's also some good Form Manipulation examples in the code bank. One of the examples gives the form a Vista Explorer type look expanding the items by clicking on the + next to the name. (http://www.dbforums.com/6301669-post51.html) or (http://www.dbforums.com/6351329-post72.html)

    I'm not a fan of registering OCX controls. Too many problems on networks with multi-external users.

    Another cool example (where the background color of the form transitions from one color to another color) is located here: http://www.dbforums.com/6310284-post59.html

    It also allows each users to set their own background color transition! (Here's another example of the color transition: http://www.dbforums.com/6326391-post64.html)
