Hi everyone,

I'm tight on space for  particular form that I 've created. So I want to eliminate what I believe is the record Selector that appears on my form which is in Datasheet view.

I have the RecordSelector Propery in the form set to "No". But in Data Sheet view, the column with the Little  arrow ( like the greater than sign > , but filled in) and the square still always show up.

Can I hide or eliminat  this column.

Comments and solutions would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Travis

Travis,

Short answer is NO

work around is to create a continuous form with fields abutting, though you lose ability to resize columns.

Why do you want to get rid of the record selector anyway?

Your options are to switch to a continuous form where the selector will disappear, but the columns can't be shifted anymore or to use a listbox.
The continuous form will support however the sort and filter possibilities like on the datasheet, the listbox won't.

Why do you want to hide this ?
