Dumb question? Is there any way of controlling the number of columns Access 2007 displays when you open up the Query Design grid? It seems to be quite arbitrary, especially for queries created previously. If I have the shutter bar open (which I do almost all the time, to view and select database objects), the QBE grid often extends beyond the right-hand side of my screen, with numerous empty columns. It is infuriating to have to scroll to resize it and/or delete unused columns. Why can't it just resize to available screen width and adjust this according to whether the shutter bar is open or closed?
