Can't get fields to display on datasheet view form

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.
