Hi, I have a main form with two subforms. The main form has a picture the customer likes and wants to see. However, the two subforms appear as white boxes on the main form picture. The customer does not like this and wants me to make the subforms transparent. I have searched for hours on the Internet (agoogle, Yahoo) over the past two days and been to many sites and cannot find the answer, at least one I like. I am finding a few answers that says this cannot be done. A few answers said to put the same picture in the subform and then align it with the main form picture but this cannot be done as it is too dificult to line the pictures up. Some of the answer did not aply to Access 2003 SP2.
There has to be a way to do this. Is there a transparent color code? Do I have to remove the subform from the main form and have the user access the subform data entry fields by clicking on a control? This might work when adding a new work request but not when viewing the existing work requests.
Because of the time I have spent unsuccessfully looking for this answer, I am assigning this question 500 points! My customer wants this form done this week. Thanks for your help.
Here are the settings:
Subform Box: Special Effect...Flat
Subform Form: Default View....Single Form
Allow Form View...Yes
Subform Detail Section: Back Color....16777215
