    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.
    Code:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
     Top_Left_Control_Name.SetFocus
    End Sub
    Linq ;0)>
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
