Subform only displays 3 records, would like it to show 5 or more

I have a subform that works great, but it only displays 3 records. How can I get it so show more?

In the design view, it's all scrunched down, there's only space for one record.

But when I run the form, the subform has room for 3 records, even if there are no records (but there's the one blank record).

So if I have 4 records, then I have to scroll down to the 4th record then back up to see the 1st, only three display.

I only need to display 5 for this form, but how to I make it expandable ?

You can resize subform in design view or (in Access 2010) you can do it in Layout View, where it is more realistic. You can resize subform in VBA code, but it is not so simple (you should at first count records, necessary space etc. It is not recommended design in Access. Normally you are reserving space for some records (5, for example) and, if there are more records, you will have scroll bar.

als315 - ok, got it. I just fiddled with the size, could have done that on my own . . . but I'm off to a good start with Access 2010, so thanks !
