Fields too far apart in Access when stacked
Posted on 2011-10-18
I am using Microsoft Access 2010. I have a database where I have a form and a report that lists columns of fields. To line up the fields, I use the Layout, Stacked command. However, in the past year or so (I think even when I was using Access 2007), when I use that command, the fields are spread too far apart. There is too much vertical space between the fields and I have to manually move each field to make them closer together (which defeats the purpose of the Stacked command). Access used to nicely stack them so there was not a lot of vertical space between the fields. I can't figure out why this is happening or how to fix it so it stacks them close together like it used to do. The database is in Access 2003-2003 file format. So, I thought maybe the problem was the format and I converted the database to 2007/2010 format but I still have the same problem.
