    Not sure if this is the right venue, but here goes...

    Is there a way to set up the display of the database so that when different
    users are using it, it shows up the same on different desktops?

    The problem I am trying ot solve is that the database is "too big" for some
    display settings and just right on mine...probably because my resolution
    settings are different that theirs...

    What then happens is they have to scroll around to see buttons and fields,
    where it is all on one screen for me...

    Solutions?

    Thanks,

    Chip

    The best thing if there is any way you can do it is to design your form to
    the largest screen resolution. If that creates a problem for smaller
    resolutions there are some resizing utilities. This link has some more
    information: http://www.mvps.org/access/general/gen0002.htm
    I should say that as of the time of this posting the links to the free
    utility in the Developer's Handbook did not work. I sent feedback pointing
    that out, but that is all I can say about that.
    I have used the free utility, and while it works it has some limitations,
    including that it does not seem to work if there is another database already
    open. I have not used any other resizing utilities, so cannot comment on
    them.

    Thanks, Bruce...the links didn't work for me either.

    If that is my only option (resizing), I may pursue that...but I sure would
    like to try that resizing tool!

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!
