I tried to change the display widths of two fields on a datasheet view form using...

Private Sub Form_Load()

    Const TWIPSTOINCHES = 1440
    Me.txtID.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 0
    Me.txtActualServiceStartDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 1
    Me.txtActualServiceStopDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 1

End Sub

Open in new window


Then when I launched the form the fields did not display at all.  Then I changed the code to...

Private Sub Form_Load()

    Const TWIPSTOINCHES = 1440
    Me.txtID.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 0
'    Me.txtActualServiceStartDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 3
'    Me.txtActualServiceStopDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 3

End Sub

Open in new window


And now the fields still won't display.

That's because when you set ColumnWidth = 0, then ColumnHidden is set to True.
However, when you set ColumnWidth to some value, then ColumnHidden is still True.

So you may need:

    Me!txtActualServiceStartDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 1
    Me!txtActualServiceStopDate.ColumnWidth = TWIPSTOINCHES * 1
    If TWIPSTOINCHES * 1 > 0 Then
        Me!txtActualServiceStartDate.ColumnHidden = False
        Me!txtActualServiceStopDate.ColumnHidden = False
    End If
