Making me crazy
I have a subform that gets viewd in datasheet view.

I have "Show Both" from scrollbars...but they don't actually show!

I can scroll down...but no scrollbars.

Any suggestions?
It's the blue grid on the screen print

Not sure, can you post a simple sample of this db that exhibits this issue...?

Sorry...this is a HUGE database and a ton of logic on form open and close events.

Open your subform in design view and try sizing down its Detail section.

<I have "Show Both" from scrollbars...but they don't actually show!>

And as a sanity check, make sure these properties are set on the subform, not just the main form.

My guess is that mbizup has your solution here.

I never asked for the entire database...
All I asked for was a "simple sample of this db that exhibits this issue"
