centering form

Iv'e tried to no avail to center a form on the screen in design view. When I change views the form reverts back to the left and I can't seem to get it to center and stay there. Drag n drop does not do it and I dont see a way to adjust the margins. What am i missing?


RE: centering form

What are your current Document Window Options?

If you have chosen Overlapping Windows, did you set the Auto Center property?

RE: centering form

i will double check

RE: centering form

autocenter property is set to yes and there are no overlapping forms

RE: centering form

iv'e also tried manually sizing the form in design view

RE: centering form

uh wait....the form that has forms, tables, macro, reports etc is overlapped by another form

RE: centering form

ok i got it. i manually resized the form so it's smaller and it worked like a charm
thanx you are the best
