Is it possible to change Access application Window size,
with something like DoCmd.MoveSize ,, X, Y or so, from
within VBA Code, and even to disable Window resizing.
The purpouse is to be able to have an stand alone application in the form of Dialog Window

why not go into the 'startup' options and disable the database window all-together, then have the program use the 'start-up' form option to load the programs main form

This is'nt acceptable, cause start-up form can't be Pop-up,
cause Application needs Menu Bar. The only solution is to
set the window size from the start-up for.
I think the answer to the problem has to deal with system calls.

this is the 2nd person that accepting the answer but the proposed solution wasn't acceptable, if you re-post it back than others can answer it, anyway, since this happened I'll look at seeing if the main database window is in the collection of objects that can be manipulated, or you can see if customer-service can reverse the affects of accepting the answer, however I do believe that disabling the resize option is not an option, I'll do some investigating this weekend as well
