I am working with a tab control (functioning ok).

HOWEVER,

. . .when I transition from Design View into Form View or
. . .when I start the form directly

I have to scroll up to get the tab labels to show up.


No matter how I position the tab control on the form
it always positions the scroll bar so the tab labels are
barely hidden.

PLEASE help.

Your tab page is too big for the size of the screen, shorten the page height and the tabs should fit in. Make sure you don't have any headers or footers in that you don't need.

Tab control size question

I have shortened my tab page as much as I can still allowing for the fields on my form (which MUST match those on the paper collection tool in layout). There are alot of fields on each of my forms. Is the idea that everything must fit into the size of the screen (which is impossible with this)?? If so, other than further reducing the size of the fonts (small already at 8 pt) or moving fields to another tab (boss says no), are there any suggestions for the problem addressed above (tabs disappearing and having to use scroll bars to get up to them?) Thanks!

Change your screen resolution, info on pop up forms, eliminate the toolbar, eliminate the status bar?
