Microsoft Access 2013 form does not open the same size as I saved it

I have an irritating problem that the "autoresize" property is supposed to take care of. When I open the form it opens showing only the first record and the form is only  3 inches high. I have to drag it down to resize. I save it in design view with the proper height and my autoresize property is set to true. Please help, thanks!

In this instance, you would want the autoresize value to be false. A value of true automatically resizes the form to display a complete record, while false will use the last saved size. See here for more details.

I like to use the Form_Open event to change the form size appropriately.

Private sub Form_Open(Cancel as integer)

    me.insideheight = 5 *1440
    me.insidewidth =  9 * 1440

End sub
