I am designing a form to enter date and employee information to use to run some reports. The basic form functions as expected but does not look like I expect.
I have attached 2 screen snips showing the Design View and the Form view.

Why does the form fill the page when I give it a width? I want the form to have the smaller appearance.

(I know I have duplicate button captions. That will change before publishing. This was originally just a "Can I do this" exercise for me. The VGK logos will also be replaced with company identifying information before publishing.)

Thanks

You appear to have tabbed documents and not overlapping windows?

Set it correctly in the Access Options

That is normal behavior for a form that is not set as pop-up. To make it narrower set the pop-up property to Yes then resize it.
