    Hey All,
    Is there a way to set an access database to auto adjust settings in order to
    appear correctly on each users screen? I have a few users who have their
    desktop set to an extremely low resolution leading to a zoomed and blocky
    access display. Will they have to adjust this themselves or is there a better
    way. Please explain where to put and how to use any code. I am a VBA rookie.
    Thanks, Adam

    There's not a nice solution for this.

    If you buy the Access Developers Handbook by Getz et al (Sybex), the chapter
    on Forms (cpt 8 from memory) has code that shows how to resize the form and
    its objects based on the screen resolution of the user.

    But I find that clunky, and I hate the very concept that some developer
    thinks he has the right to enlarge all his text so it fills up my entire
    screen. I did not buy a high res to give him that option.

    So, ultimately you define the mimimum resolution your application will run
    at, and design for that. Used to be 800x600. These days I find must people
    accept 1024x768 as a minimum, and accept that they need to upgrade their
    monitor if they have less than that.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
