Adobe ActiveX Control on Access Form

From an earlier question I posted, I learned how to install an ActiveX control on an Access form to Preview a PDF document.  That all works fine and dandy.

However, I am wondering if it is possible to resize this control.  I've tried stretching the control on the form, but it only shows a certain size no matter what.

Also, the form does not resize itself, unlike all the other forms I have created.  I can't grab an 'edge' and resize the form.

Basically the size of the control is 6" x 5", and it appears to be a fixed width and height.

Is there a way to allow this ActiveX control to be a larger size for viewing??

Hi hopelessinsalem,

Good Luck!
