Hi,
 I have designed a db in access that uses 2 popup split forms. I am having problems getting the popup split forms to keep their size properly. They seem to resize themselves at will. Even if i change their size and save them then reopen them they size to different dimensions than i saved them at. I'm not sure what's wrong. I've tried setting the autoresize to no and yes, the auto center to no and yes, fit to screen is set to no. I've tried opening them, resizing them and saving them, i've tried changing the border style to thin. Nothing i do seems to work. Sometimes they open really big and sometimes they open completely minimized except for the form header. I have 2 other forms that aren't split forms and they seem to work fine. They use subforms which don't require resizing.
Thank you for any help you can give,
 Preston

Try using in the form's On Open event the following:

DoCmd.MoveSize Right, Down, Width, Height

The units for the Right, Down, Width, Height arguments are twips (a twip is equal to 1/20 of a point, or 1/1440 of an inch...for metric, there are 567 twips in a centimeter).
