ACCESS 2007 - trying to resize one txt box

ACCESS 2007 - trying to resize one txt box

ACCESS 2007 - trying to resize one txt box

I have been using versions of Access of about 7 yrs and ACCESS 2007 is driving me insane!!!

I have dropped some fields onto a new form and am trying to resize and move the field and associated label but it keeps resizing all the fields on the form etc!!!  even though I am only selecting the one txt box!

Don't know if it is me being dum but why won't it let me resize only one txt box!  How do I turn off the multiple selection thing on the form in design view so I can move/resize one object only?

Please help!
kindest regards,

Your fields are grouped - hilite the fields, click the Arrange tab, then click the UnGroup button.

If this is your first time using 2007, you might want to stock up on aspirin and beer - in equal quantities!
