I need some advice concerning running a 2003 app with 2010. All works. it's the appearance of the thing that is the problem for example I have a logo that is centered on the screen in 2003 but when run in 2010 it's to the left and top of the screen same with some forms that have list box's. smaller forms appear centered. If I reduce the screen resolution it brings the logo and other forms more to the center of the screen depending on the reduction. Most PC' these days work in a high resolution. I work with many departsments that have XP, Windows seven office2003 and now some office 2010. My question, is there a work around for this.

Any help appreciated

If it's a resolution issue, then you'll need to add code to manage that situation. There are several products that can do this, or you can try to build your own:


The Access Developer Handbook also contains some code for this. There is no version of the Handbooks for 2007/2010, but the code from the 2003 version should work fine.

With a bit of manipulation and the resize function I get the Logo in the centre of the screen. To get it in the middle I have to in design view position the form to the left of the screen so it centres when running.
