How do I make the "Show Table" and "Linked Table" windows bigger?

    Some table names (due to company standards) are rather long and the do not
    completly show up in some Access windows. For example, when creating a new
    query in design view, the Show Table window is too small. The same goes for
    the window in Linked Table Manager. Is there any way to adjust the sizes of
    these windows to show the entire string? Also, I was hoping that the "hover"
    would work like in other Office products - but it does not. Anyone please
    help??

    Rio,

    I think you'd be better off to try changing this company standard, which was
    obviously created by an ill-informed individual (or a group of ill-informed
    individuals). You've already discovered two areas where this is not optimum.
    In addition, excessively long table names will make it difficult to lay out
    tables in a relationships view, with the full name of the table shown. Also,
    your work is made more difficult when it comes to writing and debugging VBA
    code that references long table names.
