    Hello,
    I have (I hope!) finished my database. I want to lock the size of the
    windows when they are opened, though. I've figured out how to lock them in
    place so the user can't move them around, but I can't figure out how to
    prevent the user from shrinking/enlarging the window. I thought the "can
    shrink" and "can grow" options would prevent this (if I set to "NO") but that
    didn't seem to do anything...thoughts? Thanks so much!!!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Just set the Border Style for the form to Dialog. It prevents the form
    being re-sized; it does not cause the form to open in dialog mode.

    HTH,

    Rob

    Dude, you rock. That works perfect. So...how much do you know about deploying
    to end users who don't have Access on their computer? :) That's where I'm
    stuck right now. Someone had recommended VSTO but when I go to the site to
    investigate, it's showing several programs. I'm new to releasing to users w/o
    Access...so far I've only built programs for people who already HAVE Access...

    Hi again,

    I know next-to-nothing about deploying to users without Access. But there
    are plenty of people here who do know, and it's a fairly common question - a
    search on this group in Google Groups should give you a good number of hits.
    My memory of the general gist of them is:

    1. End-users must have Access, or a run-time version of Access.

    2. The run-time version is included in the Access Developers Kit, and can be
    distributed with your application to end-users without any additional
    payment or licencing.

    I've never heard of VSTO, so I can't comment on that. If your search
    doesn't give sufficient info, I'd repost that question as a new thread -
    it's likely to get missed in this one now.

    Rob

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!
