Can anyone explain the following:

?Me.ScaleMode = vbPixels
True
?Me.ScaleWidth
 289
?Me.Width / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
 297

Why are the two 'widths in pixels' not the same?

OK - so therefore, to set the form's interior width to 200px I should use the following:

Me.Width = ((Me.Width / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX) - Me.ScaleWidth + 200) * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
