Form opens up in big size

Hello All,

I have a form and when i go to design view > form properties
i have set it autosize = no
and saved it

When i open the form in datasheet mode, it always shows up in big size?

Can anyone indicate whats happening and how this could be fixed

You may have tabbed documents turned on.

Go to Options -> Current Database -> under Application optins at the top you will see Document Window Options. If the Tabbed Documents option is checked, the form will always open maximised. The Overlapping Windows option will allow the form to open at your desired size.

You may need to change the option then close and reopen the database to see the change in window options.

Have you tried resizing the form/datasheet view before you save?
