Prevent text box from moving in Outlook 2003 custon form

One of my text boxes moves to the right if I change width of display. How do I freeze the location? About 20 other fields behave just fine. I can't see any obvious difference in Properties.
The horizontal line also gets wider if I change the display width.
Thanks!

Hi, willef.

Unless the "Resize with form" box is checked on the Display tab of that control's properties, then it should not resize.

Can you upload a copy of the form so I can have a look?  You'll need to save the form as an .oft file and change the extension to .txt in order to upload.

Here you go.
If you widen the screen, the Categories text box moves and the horizontal line gets wider to the right.
If you change the height of the form, then the Running Notes box height changes.
I think the Notes and the Categories fields allow scroll bars to display, which is unique to them, if that helps to know.
Thanks!

The line is set to resize witht the form and the box is to the right of the line.  When the line resizes it is affecting the text box.

Great catch! Missed that.
One last thing, then I''; leave you alone - what about the height of the Recurring Notes field changing? I do not see the Resize check box problem there.

Notice that Outlook forms don't have scrollbars.  Outlook tries to keep all form fields visible all the time.  In this case it is trying to adjust the fields in order to keep them all on the screen.
