Horizontal Continuous Forms

In Access 97 any form can be changed to continuous, but then it places the records vertically. Is it possible create the form that will display them horizontaly. (I don't want to place the fields on the from throught the means of the code and then manually handle events) However if some one will provideme with such code I will pump up the number of points.

You can do it in reports, but not forms. This sounds like a good product enhancement idea for MS.

You can "fake it" using a series of identical sub-forms arranged in a horizontal row. By applying appropriate filters to each you can display a series of rows, and simulate scrolling by changing the filters.

Thanks to ramrom, but I belive that solution will make the database to slow

I think then the only way is to use the controls on the form and populate them with codes and simulate scrolling. If you fix the horizontal size of the form: that is, a fix number of records per view, you can do it in code. It's not that hard, really.

Good point, tuvi. That way the performance would not suffer either.

If the items you'd like to display are not to be editable you can create a cross-tab query and format it so that you get your values displayed as you like.

Create an extremely wide form with one text-box. On_Load of that form, count the number of records and replicate the text box that many times (I know for sure it's possible in VB, but maybe impossible in Access.... you'll have to try :) Go through all the records and write the values into the textboxes.
Now, that wide form should have a horizontal scrollbar enabled. Insert it as a subform into any form and you'll have a horizontal subform! (Well, sort of :)
