Why sub-form which is a continuous form has 1st record filling the space

The attached screen shot is the best I can show to demonstrate what is happening.  The left side of the shot is the main form.  To the right of it is the sub-form which is a continuous form.  I cannot figure out why the first record on the sub-form is filling the vertical space available instead of just enough to show the record.  Make sense?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open the subform in design view.  Make sure the background is only as high as the data fields.  Drag up the footer bar if necessary.

Chances are that the subform, when in design view has a huge Detail section.  Shrink the height of the detail section of the subform when in design view so that it is only as tall as needed by the controls on the form.
