Set Subform's Top Property via VB Code

Hello all!

I have a Form (not a tabbed form this time).  On that Form I have 4 subforms.  Based upon a Frame option group certain of these subform's will be made visible.  However I would like to set the Top property of the subform when the AfterUpdate of the option group is selected.

The Mainform has a header.  Where I want the subform Control to appear is at 1.635" down within the Detail section.  So I attempted.

Me![subform].Top = (me.formHeader.Height + 1.635)  

However, this doesn't work.  Is there a way I can set that Subform's Top setting with Code????

You need to multiply inches by 1,440 to convert to TWIPS....

1.635 * 1440

Also, I don't think you need to include the height of the header section.

The measurement (I think) begins in the section where your control is located.


Me.subform.Top = 1.635 * 1440

That was it!!!!!!!!!!!

And you ARE in fact correct .... the height didn't need to be in the formula!!!!!

Thanks mbiz

Glad to help!

Your syntax was fine... but without the conversion your subform was moving by a mere smidgen.  :-)
