    Unhappy Creating professional looking forms.

    I have a form and in the detail section a tab control...on the tab there are about 6 pages...on each page a sub form.

    My problem is when in form view...depending on the size of my sub form, my form is just running left and right.

    I tried auto resize, auto centre options on the main form...but still no result.

    Can any one provide me examples of professional looking forms. Or help me out in solving this.

    I am attaching a mdb file...plz look at it and help me make a good form

    Thanks in advance.

    i have seen your db. as I can see, it is obviously will go left and right because the layout section of your form is longer than the width of your form and your tab control is longer that the width of your main form. most probably, you should make adjustment on that.

    ok. so if you cant change the width of your form, why not change the width of your layout section to smaller than your form width...

    i havent encountered access automatically putting the form to 12 inches. you can always set its width properties to smaller.

    ah i see why it automatically sets your widths form to 12 inches it is because of your tab control. you have to adjust your tab control's width to smaller.

    if you want to create a professional and or good looking forms, you should rely on your creativity. no one can taught you how to be creative. imagine what your form would be and put it into work.
