FordRaiders,

See my article here for some ideas

Short answer is recent versions of Access have dorked this up.  When I want columns placed in a certain order and a certain width, I create a procedure to do it and call that procedure from the Form_Load event.

Private Sub ColumnWidths

    me.controls("txt_Field1").columnwidth = 1 * 1440
    me.controls("txt_Field2").columnwidth = .75 * 1440
    me.controls("txt_Field3").columnwidth = 1.25 * 1440

End Sub

Note that I've referenced the control name, not the field name.
