Hi

I am quite new to Access 2007.  What is preventing me from moving the controls around a form. I tried "snap to grid" and it didn't make a difference.

thanks

In design view you need to click on the Arrange tab at the top and then under Control layout click on Remove to deselect it. If that doesn't work then click on Stacked to deselect it.

Just make sure the form is in design view and you should be able o move the controls around as needed.
