Hi experts

I have a sub-form, and the sub-form is wider than the main form, and that is the point. But when i open the main form, the horizontal scrollbar in the sub-form is all the way to the right, and I want it to be all the way to the left.

how can i ensure that?

Make sure to set the Tab order for the controls in your subform correctly. In Design view, click View - Tab Order. If I'm not mistaken, Access uses this (among other things) to determine where to scroll when dealing with forms larger than their parent form.

That did the trick :-)
