Set window position in access

Hi,

I am trying to set a window position for access forms. From visual basic I know a form.top and form.left property- which I unfortunately cannot find here. What are my options?

The actual window I want to position is the MS Access mother window, NOT the child form. I reckon this complicates it even more? ;) We love challenges, dont we?

Any help appreciated,
Best regards,
Nite

Well,

I know one way wich is working 100%. It uses the APIs.
Declare the MoveWindow API as follows:

Declare Function MoveWindow Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal bRepaint As Long) As Long


and in your form you can set this code:

Dim retval As Long  ' return value
' Move the window and make sure it's redrawn at its new
' position.

retval = MoveWindow(Application.hWndAccessApp, 200, 150, 175, 300, 1)

' You can use any x,y,width,hight values you want

' (If the last value had been 0, the window would have appeared to be unmoved!)
Regards

Where is the function declaration loaded in Access? Is there a special 'file' within the modules that has to contain the code? or can I just put it in the top of a form which I know will be loaded sooner or later?
