    Windows Themes and Access Form

    I have an Access application which looks fine in "Windows Classic" theme, but have users which prefer themes other than "Windows Classic" - and that makes the forms look downright awful.

    Has anyone found a way to or a subroutine to enable a form for a user not using "Windows Classic" to be programatically changed to look the way it was originally designed in "Windows Classic"?

    Any API calls which I might need?

    Anyone with insight who could help me?
