Pb in dimensioning a date and time picker control

I'm using the MSCOMCT2.OCX date and time picker control in an outlook 2000 form. When I fix the dimensions of the control (using the mouse) and I run the form, my control has lost its dimensions and is very little (we cannot even see what is written in the control). I have to dimension it very hudge to see something and as soon as I click on an other tab in the window of form editing and that I come back to the tab on which is positionned my control, it has lost one more its dimension and it is once more very little...

What's this ? Help me please !

I don't have that control loaded.

Look at the display tab on the properties window (right-click on control) and see if the Resize with Form Box is checked.  If it is checked, uncheck it and see if that helps.

The control stays as it is in fact when I uncheck this option and run my form but if I move from "Reading Page" to "Editing Page" (I hope it's the right english name for the two buttons which are over the tabs) I always loose the size of my control.

Anyhow thanks a lot, because it helped me have the right size for my control, the only thing is that I have to resize it whenever I'm in the "Editing Page" mode (after coming from "Reading page" mode). If you have any answer about this mistery, feel free to answer.
