    Unanswered: Field size and position

    I have an issue sometimes! One computer may be fine another with a smaller monitor won't have the same luck.

    I have a form that I open, it always opens in the bottom right corner and the left side of the form is usually cut off. What do I need to set to correct these issues?

    I know this is probably a simple one, but I would appreciate the help!

    Fix the resolution on the small screen would be a start. Or shrink the form size on the large screened monitor. Or just maximize all windows/forms.

    I hope one of those options will help.

    Thank you for your quick response. I was trying to avoid doing anything with the screen if I could help it.
    I was hoping to format the form to show up on the left side or enter code on open to shift everything to the left and set the width accordingly.

    I know you can do something like that but I dont know the coding for it. You might want to try the centering option.

    Open the form in design mode.
    Right click a blank space.
    Click the drop down and click on the form. ( to bring up the form properties )
    Click the All tab.
    Scroll down till you see Auto Center or something similar, Make that be yes.
    Press CTRL+S to save.
    Close the properties box.
    Close the form.
    Open it again see if it centers correctly.
