    Scroll bars


    I have an unbound form. I'm making a calendar, so it is full of unbound text boxes and list boxes. I have the form set for scroll bars. I have the form very full, but the scroll bars do not appear, and I can't go to the bottom of the form.

    perhaps the form is bigger than the screen? so the scrollbars are off screen? Can't really advise otherwise without seeing an example

    I just noticed that the min and max buttons are missing. On the properties, they show that they should be on.

    Did you disable the control box? If yes, you remove the min/max/close buttons regardless.
    - "doesn't work" is no help. Post err msgs and where.
    - Use code tags for code/sql. Implement changes in copies of your database.

    The scroll bars are there until I put it in pop up mode. When I do that, the scroll bars disappear. Any way to keep the scroll bars and in pop up mode?

    Apparently not. Why use Popup mode? Are you using Tabbed Documents? I always use Overlapping Windows.

    I ended up making the form the size of the window and shrunk the information
