AC2000: Unchanging Detail Section Size

AC2000: Unchanging Detail Section Size

AC2000: Unchanging Detail Section Size

I have a form where the detail section refuses to change to the size I set it in Design view.  No matter how I stretch the Detail section, it doesn't change during run time.

BTW:  This is a database converted from AC97 (if that matters)... and I have a subform in the footer (so I can delete a record if needed.  Maybe you can tell me how I can also do this while the subform is in detail section to delete record in main form.)

Anybody else have this problem??????

RE: AC2000: Unchanging Detail Section Size

Never mind.. I figured out the problem.  Apparently the footer of a form has a size limitation.  Once I shrink the footer by squishing my subform and control buttons together, the Detail section of my form expanded nicely!

Go Figure!

Never had that problem Access 97.
