Access Forms 2010

Hi EE

I have developed a dB in 2003 one of the forms is large,  width 39cm, it opens completely in 2003 but if I make an mde using 2010 or converting the dB to 2010 the form will only open to 34 cm. I can't expand in 2010 design view either. When I open this form a part is missing. Question, I have been into settings to try and correct this but can't find an adjustment surely 2010 doesn't restrict form width. Any help appreciated

Hi,

1) did you try MoveSize Command like below

On Form open event

frm.MoveSize 1000, 500, 500. 500. (Insert your own Values)

2) did you try Form Properties Width Value ?

i am able to change more then 50 cm

3) I am using Office 2010 Sp2.
   
     did you installed Service Pack in your PC ?

If you haven't done so already, you need to set your database to display your forms as 'Overlapping Windows' if you want your Access 2010 forms to behave like Access 2003 forms.

Created a new Database in 2010 and designed a form which allowed me to go beyond the 35.5 mark. So problem is in my database. Have you any ideas how to rectify it's rather a large and complex form to redesign in 2010. At the moment I only want to make an mde which will run under 2010. I have two forms with the same problem.

Also if I try and design a new form within my Database it wont go beyond the 35.5 mark

I am completely stuffed I have another form in the Database that has a width of 40cm and it works fine. I compared properties with both forms and they are identical. I can't see  Why this particular form wont open to it's required width. I think I will close this question it's something I will have to nut out not sure how

I put together a small Database with the problem form and removed the Code in the on open event to allow the form to open without adding tables and queries. I opened in 2010 to make sure it's working and it opened in full screen. So I figure there must be something causing the problem in the forms on open event code. I will investigate further and let you know if I do find a problem

I have found the problem. In the form on open event I found a Call statement
Call FormTool(me,100,55,1500,820)
Public Sub FormTool(frm As Form, Xpos, Ypos, xSize, ySize As Long)

Dim R As RECT
Dim Ret As Long
Dim FormHeight As Long
Dim FormWidth As Long
Dim IncrementW As Long
Dim IncrementH As Long
Ret = GetWindowRect(frm.hwnd, R)
FormWidth = R.Right - R.Left
FormHeight = R.Bottom - R.Top

Ret = MoveWindow(frm.hwnd, Xpos, Ypos, xSize, ySize, 1)
                   
End Sub

From memory it's to place the form on specific location and Size.

I removed the Call formtool and fixed the problem

I did a search through out the Database and I used that Call FormTool in a lot of forms but rem'd them out and must have missed the Problem form.
