Hiding the taskbar

Hiding the taskbar

Hiding the taskbar

I've created a database for use by several of my colleagues at work.  Although all forms fit my screen, it isn't the same for all my colleagues.  In an attempt to solve this I thought I'd try to hide the taskbar (some have quite deep ones)and then get my form to occupt its space on screen.

In the Microsoft Knowledge Base I found 2 articles on this: one a VB article which supposed to cover the taskbar (Q197585) and one an Office 97 article which hides it (Q186119). Unfortunately, the first of these articles doesn't work for Access 97 and the second works to the extent of hiding the taskbar but I can't recover that part of the screen with my form. Can anyone help?  (What I'd really like is to automate the AutoHide property.)
