Forms and Subforms

Forms and Subforms

Forms and Subforms

I have a main form with three subforms that don't fit entirely on the screen. Every time I go to the bottom half of the subform the main form does not scroll down. If I manually scroll down the main form, after entering data in the subform the main form jumps(scrolls up) to the top. How can I resolve this problem i.e.(1- make the main form scroll to the bottom as I hit the scroll arrows or as the fields in the bottom half of the subforms receive the focus, and 2- stop the main form from jumping up to the top after data entry in the subforms).


RE: Forms and Subforms

I think maybe your subform is wider that the screen resolution.

Open your Main form in design view.
Then shrink up the subform drastically for a test.
View your main form and see if you have the same problem.
If Not then back in design view gradually widden your subform and go back to view mode. As soon as the scroll bars show back up reduce the size of the subfom slightly.

RE: Forms and Subforms

my forms are longer not wider and they have to stay that way. The problem is a lot more complex than it seems. and it has to be solved through code.
