Hello,

I created a program in Access 2003, this program contains a variety of forms.
On my XP PC, no problem.

Under W7, and Access 2003, parts of form not displayed on the screen while in design mode everything appears, it is the same as W8.

Could you help me solve this problem, I'm looking, I can not find the solution.
Thank you in advance

Sincerely

Well for sure, it's not supported in Windows 8, but I would think it would display at least.

Win 7 should not be a problem.  

What part of the form is not drawing?  Is it the same in both?  

I would probably suspect the form being corrupt in some way.

Also, are you using standard native Access controls (like Textbox, Combo, etc), or are you using ActiveX controls?

<<I use standard native Access controls >>

 Under windows 7 and windows 8, is it the same area of the form that does not display correctly?

FWIW, I run Access 2003 under Windows 7 (64 bit) with no issues.

Have you tried re-installing Office/Access on those machines/

Are you sure the machines are fully up to date with Windows updates?

Are you sure all the video hardware has fully updated drivers?

Does this happen on ALL Win7 machines, or only on some?

Thank you very much for research, I just realized that the problem was at the height of the screen. Forms have summers configured for 15-inch and are not automatically reformatted. The problem was actually a 13 inch PC.
Again, thank you and sorry to have disturbed a problem that I should see myself
