    Sizing a split form

    Is there a trick to sizing a split form? The split form has a datasheet on bottom and is in pop up and modal mode if that matters. The form always seems to maximize no matter what I do.

    Many things work differently in post-2003 Databases because of the Document Window Options, a new option with 2007/2010, which defaults to 'Tabbed Documents.' Changing this option to Overlapping Windows basically causes many things in Form Design to act like they did pre-2007.

    1. Go to Office Button (Big Icon, Top/Left)
    2. Click on Access Options (bottom, right of Dialog Box)
    3. Click on Current Database
    4. Under Document Window Options tick Overlapping Windows
    5. Click on OK (Bottom, Right)
    6. Close the Messagebox, then Close and Re-open Access

    Thanks for the reply but this did not solve my problem. I don't know why but the split form always maximizes no matter what I do. Very strange. Thanks anyway.

    I can't reproduce that problem, using v2007. Can you remove any confidential data, zip up the file and post it here as a attachment?
