Hi experts,

Is it possible for Access to open up, check the screen resolution and change the users screen resolution temporarily to 1024x768, and then on close change the resolution back to what the user had before opening up my access db?

The situation is this: I have developed this database in a resolution of 1024x768 so all the forms fill the screen as required.  If the user has a resolution of 1280x1024 and then they open my database, the forms will only take up a smaller area of the screen, and from a GUI perspective, makes the whole database look unprofessional.  Hopefully the above explains my problem, but please let me know if I can offer further guidance to my problem.

Best regards and as usual, thanks.
