VB6 ListView Control - Can't see last item in list and scrollbar hasn't yet appeared

I am using a listview control in VB6.  I add several items to my control based on how many files are in a directory.  A scrollbar appears when more items are loaded into the grid than can be viewed at one time, however there is a point when the bottom item is added and can't be seen and no scrollbar appears.  So, if there happens to be that specific number of files in the directory, then the last item can't be seen.  Has anyone else run into this?  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks.

Well, it's not inside a frame.  I think I have the latest service pack - SP5.  The listview sits on a form called frmReports and that form sits on an MDI form.  On Form_Resize of frmReports the listview is first set to the MDI.scaleheight and then it is set to the height of frmReports.

There is a statusbar at the bottom of the MDI form and I think the bottom of the listview is getting hidden behind it.  I subtracted the height of the statusbar from the listview on resize and that seems to have fixed the issue.  Thanks for trying to help me out.  I'll go ahead and split my points between you two.
