Hi EE

I am using the following to resize a text box
FW  = text.Width
FH = text.Height
me!txt.Width = 5000
me!txt.Height = 25000

I am at the bottom of the form and would like the text box to expand upwards instead down wards.
Any help appreciated

you would set the 'top' and 'left' of the textbox first.
then ascertain how much space you have,
then set the height and width

you set the top to wherever you wish. A few points below the field above it?
If the one above is a fixed position then it will be previous field top + height + a few points
same for the left (a few points form the left of the page?0
