its kind of hard to do with a vscroll
the easiest way would be to put all your controls in a frame then have vscroll control the position of that frame.  I would just set the min of the scrollbar to 0 and the max to the height of the frame.  then with the Private Sub VScroll1_Change() event just use the vscroll.value to set the height position of the frame.

Private Sub VScroll1_Change()
    Frame1.height = VScroll1.Value
End Sub

another oops, just do this for the change event
Private Sub VScroll1_Change()
    Frame1.Top = -VScroll1.Value
End Sub

Ok well that will be tricky too...Because as I scroll up, I'll have to keep making the frame bigger and scroll bar bigger because the frame will just scroll off the screen.

na you can just set the max to the height of the fram minus the height of the form, then subtract the height of the title bar and it wont go off the form
