    Hi,

    I have a similar problem however it is with Access itself rather than the
    forms inside my database. The database border is only open 50% with a
    maximised screen inside. Is there any way in which I can get access to open
    fully so it covers the whole of the screen and not just half of it?

    Regards,

    Kieron White
