Form not looking right. How to fix

Im adding a sub form to an access database form.   I added the leads list to the contact sub form. I dont like the look of the sub form.  

First,  I dont want it to have a scroll bar if there is nothing to scroll to.  But it is there.
Second.  How would change the header format.

IMHO, and from user feedback testing UI for UX, I have found no UX benefit to this so I have never tried.


Second.  How would change the header format.
My guess is you are using Datasheet view. Try switching to continuous form view. I almost always you continuous form view because I have a lot more control over how it looks and other things.

Here is a sample on how I would like it to look.  There is no horizontal scroll bar. It is just a lot cleaner. The headers are better, no footers.

I dont see a continuous.  The only options I see are Columnar, tabular, datasheet, and justified.

I closed it and opened a new thread with more detail and a sample database.  HOpefully I can get the final answer to that.

I finally got to a place to look at your posted database.

Open the form "Lead List" in design view. Look at the Form's property sheet. Change the default view property

I took a few minutes and updated your form to look a lot more like the image you posted of vTiger.

Actually your follow post did help.  I wasnt sure how to remove some of the headers and selectors and stuff like that.  I just copied your settings and put it into the database I already have.  Thank you.
