MoveSize in reports

Hi experts,

I am trying to open a report using a cmd button on my form.  I would like the report to open up at a specified size and not completely over the top of my form.  For example, the left hand side of the report should start at 5cm.  The top of the report should start at 4cm and the width of the report should be 15cm.

I have tried using the MoveSize command in VBA and also have tried creating a macro with the movesize command but this has not worked either.  I have no idea what I am doing wrong.  In the Access help it says that it is possible to MoveSize in reports, but it is not working for me.  The report opens in full screen print preview and when I click the very top left corner (app icon) the Move and Size are greyed out.  Can anybody help?

Thank you.
Terry

e.g.

if your report is being opened maximised, then MoveSize has no affect so u could try adding this before MoveSize

DoCmd.Restore

and see what happens

Sorry Rocki for the late response.  Been on holiday for the past couple of weeks and just catching up.  I will try your suggestions, and come back with a new question if I have one.  

Best regards,

Terry
