Access Form Scrolling Issue

I have a form that is very long in length.  I had wanted to make it a tabbed form but it can't be that way.  It has to stay "long".  So therefore I have scroll bar turned on vertically.  But when the user closes the form with a command button I have in the footer of the form, they have to scroll all the way up again to see another form that I have staying open.

Is there anyway to make the "scrolling up again" automatic when the user closes the form?

you can call a sub procedure in the close event of the long form to set the focus on another open form

I tried that with this and still had to manually scroll back up to see the form that was still open.

Private Sub Form_Close()
    Forms!frmLeftOpen.SetFocus
End Sub

Open in new window

After setting focus to the form, try setting focus to a CONTROL on that form.

Scott,

I tried that.  I'm going to try to put together an example but I can't show the real forms due to confidentiality.

I've attached an example file.  The main menu form will open when you start the database.  Then click [Open Long Form].  I've removed all of the fields from the form.  Scroll to the bottom of the long form and click [Close Form].

I want to have the "scrolling" go back to the top so I can see the first form again.

Very interesting.  I can see what you did but would the position of the main menu end up is different locations depending on user's screen resolution?

I guess I'm not sure.
