Access 2010 subforms in a form, not showing scrollbars

Hello All

I have an Access 2010 program.  There is a main form, and on that main form I have a subform control.  When I press different buttons that subform control has a different form pop into it.  Some of the subforms are pretty big so I would need scrollbars to appear for the subform.  For the life of me I cannot get scrollbars to appear.  Do I need to set something for each of the subforms or do I set something for the control itself?

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay in writing back.  I am going to post a picture of what it looks like.  I was under the impression that if there are more fields on a form than can be shown on the screen that the program will put in scrollbars.  I came up with a cheating kind of fix for now.  I have shrunk the control that holds the subform down to a really small size, this seems to force scrollbars to appear.

To be clear...
There are no scroll bars for any of the subforms, or is this an issue for just one sub form?

When I press different buttons that subform control has a different form pop into it.
For each subform, there is a "Scrollbars" property, ...make sure this is set to "Both" (for all of the various subforms)

Hi Jeffrey,

It is with all the subforms.  I thought I tried setting the scrollbar property for each subform to both but nothing happened.  I will try it again.

So it is not a function of the control that displays the subform on the main form?

Thanks!

Update,

I noticed that for some of the subforms I get a scrollbar for left and right but not for up and down.  I checked and the setting for scrollbar is set for both.

Not sure what might be up.

Thanks

Try to upload a sample database with a form and subform showing the issue.

The up and down scrollbars will only appear if there are more records than can fit in the subform.
