Hello Geek,

Please help me to maxamize the main window on startup. I have 2 Access apps running for 2 departments and some users use both. Sometimes the main window opens small but i want to use all the screen space.

Thanks,

M

Hi Moother,

make a maco, in the Action column, select the following:
OpenForm, in the properties, select the Form Name,
maximize
save as autoexec

I hope this helps.

Thanks, but maybe i didn't explain fully.

I know how to maxamize a form, but it's the main window of the app i want to go full screen.

Maxamizing a form only makes it as big as the main window allows but doesn't give my app the full screen i need.

Thanks,

m

Moother,

Private Sub Form_Load()

'DoCmd.MoveSize Right, Down, Width, Height

'example
           DoCmd.MoveSize 4000, 3000            'this will move the 3" x 5 " form at the center of 21 inch monitor

end sub

got it from capricorn1's comment in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_21125698.html

your concern is in the width and the Height

when you stretch your Form to the max, look at the value in the Form properties, then plug them in the code
keep in mind 1"=1440 twips

Moother, I think you should try what danny pointed to, it looks the best solution, and it is summarized like this:

instead of using

DoCmd.Maximize

use

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAppMaximize

(Docmd.Maximize only maximizes the active internal window/form/report/etc)

where as DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdAppMaximize will maximize the application window
