Hi Experts,

I have a program that are in use by a couple of users and they only have the MDE (A2003) file.

While in general this works fine, however I have a form/report which contains a lot of columns and hey would like to be able to select under hide/unhide the columns they need, including order of the columns.

Currently after they close the screen all their changes are lost, and the only way I can have them save it is by copying the original MDB and make their changes then save it, which is quite of a hassle..

What are the alternatives?
