page break on a form access 2013

Hi EE
I have placed a page break on a form top half and bottom half. When I select the Page Down button the form moves to the bottom half but then is stuck there Page Up button does nothing. I have used page breaks before although a long time ago and from memory the page down and page up button did the trick. Is there any diffedrence with access 2013

Try setting the value of the "Cycle" property of the form differently, and see how that works. Page Breaks are not often used in Forms, so it's possible other settings are conflicting with that.

Page breaks are usually for reports but I have a form that is to big for the screen and I can't reduce any further without loosing some information it's rather a complex form and thought a page break might be the solution. With a good screen resolution no problems but there are a few laptops in the mix with low resolution 1300 x ----. I will play around a see what happens. It's getting late here so will try again tomorrow

Generally, when you have more information on one form than will fit on the screen, the best solution is to use the tab control and split the data up using some logic to determine what goes on each tab.

Use the tab control as Dale Suggested.   much either then trying to page in the form (which I used to do).

The problem with page breaks is your still limit to 22" of vertical design surface, so depending on resolution, 3 or 4 pages is it.  

With a tab control, you can have a dozen without issue.

 But to answer your question, yes it should work.   In addition to what Scott said, make sure you don't have any code trying to "eat up" page down/up keystrokes in the form (look at the Keypreview event) to prevent the user from moving off the record.

Page breaks can also be used in a form as an alternative to a tab control.  I tend to use the tab control more often though.  If you use page breaks, you can add buttons on your form to go to a particular page.  In the OnClick event of your button you would add this:
Me.GoToPage (2)
The above would of course take you to the 2nd page of your form.

Hi Jim

I used a blank form and inserted a page break and it worked so there is somthing on my form preventing it from working.
I am not familiar with the Tab control.

The form would be split int into two Top and bottom.
