make a report to open to the right of...

In a two screens setting; the form opens in the large screen. But. upon dbl-click on a label on a the form an expected report opens in the smaller screen not on the top of the form where I am trying to get it opened.

FYI, the report is only 2 inches wide and opens in  dialog mode. This report is best to open 3 inches from the left edge of the form in the large screen as well.

Question: How can I change the following code (possibly passing the left position of the report as OpenArgs)?

DoCmd.OpenReport "report1", acViewReport,,, asDialog

Or, do something in the open/ load event of the report to sense the left-position of the form to position itself 3 inches to right of it.

All works fine except that the report opens up in the laptop monitor (smaller screen) not in the large screen.

Thank you.

You can use DoCmd.MoveSize to position an object:

DoCmd.MoveSize 250, 300

This would position the object at 250 (inches, centimeters, etc) to the right of the Access window, and 300 in/cm down from the top of the Access window. If you want to position it beside another object, you'd have to get that object's position first, and use that. For example, if I wanted to put it beside a form named "fUser", I'd do this:

Dim iRight As Integer
Dim iDown as Integer

iRight = Forms("fUser").WindowLeft + Forms("fUser").Width
iDown = Forms("fUser").WindowTop

DoCmd.MoveSize iRight, iDown

You would do this in the Load or Open event of your report.
