Hoi,

I have a simple database with a few forms which have all different sizes.
How do i get my forms always full screen and in the center of the screen.
I've tried, and it only worked with complicated VBA which I found on the internet.
Is there a simple way to do that.

If you are using A2007 or newer, switch to the tab interface.  Otherwise all you need is a single line of code in each form's Open event.

DoCmd.Maximize

This makes the forms full screen but doesn't center or resize them.  The code you were looking at actually resizes the forms and the controls and centers them so they look nice.

If you have the code working, why switch?

If you really want the forms adjusted so they look natural at full size, get something like Peter's shrinker stretcher (or something like that) from Peter's Software.  The price is low and it requires changing the command to open a form from the standard DoCmd.OpenForm to their custom command.  I don't recall anything else but it has been a few years since I've used it.
