Unanswered: Tabs Not Visible When I Open The Form
I have a small form in Access 2003 with five tabs.
Each tab represents a different county with command buttons.
When I OPEN the form the tabs are not visible. They are just out of sight at the top of the form.
I have to scroll up (the same exact heigth of the tabs) to make them visible - each time I open the form. YIKES!
The form size is a little over 3 inches wide and 4.25 inches tall.
That's all I need it to be.
Ideas ~ solutions?
Thanks much . . . Rick

This problem usually means that
- The Form is too long to be viewed, in its entirety, without scrolling.
- The first Control to get Focus, when the Form Opens, is near the bottom of the Form.
Having to scroll a Form in order to see all Controls is very user-unfriendly and should be addressed thru design changes.
The second problem can be remedied by setting Focus, when the Form Loads, on a Control near the top, left-hand corner of the Form.
Private Sub Form_Load() Top_Left_Control_Name.SetFocus End SubHope this helps!
The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
