    Unanswered: Access 2010 Form Question



    I'm new to 2010 and I'm stuck on a VERY simple problem. I am designing forms and they only display one way, full screen. I can't size them in any way that matters. I have played with every property I can think of and once I switch to Form View it fills the entire available Access window. Please tell me the one simple thing I am overlooking that will fix this or ask for whatever additional information you need that I am leaving out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Presuming it's the same as 2007

    Office Button/Access Options/Current Database/Document Window Options

    You want Overlapping Windows.

    That did it.

    It is slightly different in 2010, but close enough I found the option you mentioned. Now that I can switch between the two I like the funtionality of the tabs, but it is very helpful to be able to see the form as it was designed to look like.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Thank you! I've been getting increasingly frustrated over this for a couple of weeks, and was just about to post a question about it!
    10% of magic is knowing something that no-one else does. The rest is misdirection.
