Tabbing from Main form to Subform changes the look of the form - I lose elements on the Main Form...

Tabbing from Main form to Subform changes the look of the form - I lose elements on the Main Form...

(OP)
I have a main form with a searchbox. Under that I have a subform. When the user tabs from the searchbox to the subform, the GUI changes and I lose view of the searchbox on the Main form. And I can't tab back to it.

Here is the design view.


Here is the Main form view showing the contents of the Subform.


Here is what you see when you tab from the top searchbox to the subform. I lose the top search box.


Appreciate any help on this, I could deal with it but I'm making this for other users... and it's an aggravating issue.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

I expect the subform height is too high to display the top of the main form. Try shrink the vertical height of the subform.

Thank you!.... I never thought to check that since when it first comes up, I can see the bottom of the form. I shortened the subform and it doesn't do it anymore. Problem is I'll have to adjust another form that appears there as well, and that one is a pain.... 50+ elements on it. Thanks again.
