I need a way to programmatically adjust the size of the columns in a subform so the scrollbar goes away.

Something akin to double-clicking the column seperators to force them to the size of the header.

Here is a picture depicting what I want to accomplish:

Try this:

Dim ctl  As Control
   
        For Each ctl In Me.subform1.Form.Controls
               If ctl.ControlType = acTextBox And ctl.Properties("visible") = True Then ' Only set the width for visible textboxes
                    ctl.SetFocus
                    SendKeys "%B", False
                    DoCmd.RunCommand (acCmdColumnWidth)
                End If
        Next ctl

Or how about this?

Private Sub ResizeCommentsSubForm()
    Forms![frmEntriesForm]![frmCommentsSUB]![TimeStamp].ColumnWidth = -1
    Forms![frmEntriesForm]![frmCommentsSUB]![CommentType].ColumnWidth = -1
    Forms![frmEntriesForm]![frmCommentsSUB]![Comment].ColumnWidth = 4000   'twips
End Sub

(I found my old code for handling this)
