    Shrink space occupied by a control on main form when it is hidden.

    I am trying to shrink the space occupied by a subform when it is hidden, is there a way to use the height of the subform in centimeters from the property sheet/format tab.
    Also this code below does not seem to change anything.

    Private Sub Form_Current()
    If IsNull(Me.[Client ID].Value) = True Then

    Me.visitsdatasheetform.Visible = False
    Me.visitsdatasheetform.height = 0
    Docmd.MoveSize , , , Me.InsideHeight = -10000

    Else

    Me.visitsdatasheetform.Visible = True
    Me.visitsdatasheetform.Height = 10000
    DoCmd.MoveSize , , , Me.InsideHeight + 10000

    End If


    End Sub

    Why do you need to do this on a form? Why is this important?

    The first MoveSize syntax looks wrong. Remove the equal sign.

    Step debug, follow the code as it executes. Refer to link at bottom of my post for debug techniques.

    i am trying to have a subform appear only when the "Cliend ID "has been created, i have removed the = sign and it works only for the subform, but the white space does not go when the subform is hidden.

    Probably have to reduce the size of the section the subform sits in. Is it in Detail section? Detail section has CanGrow and CanShrink properties.
