When using print preview on a selected form other than the first form you see on opening the db - it always reverts back to the the first form for preview and not the one I would like, also certain tabs on this are missing. How can you change to get a full preview of the form you want instead of running back to the first form on opening the db?

Do you have a form with Tab pages? And its that when you are on Tab No 3 for example, and try to preview the form, it shows Tab no 1?
Or is ti that you have a form that opens up while opening up the database. You might then close it and open up another form yourself. Try to preview it however the print preview still shows the first startup form?

This is not a normal behavior of an Access form. Can you try to preview the form from the database i have attached.
If this works then can you post your database here.
You might need to change your default printer to generic/text only and check the results of your form's print preview.
