    Form width (Access@003 SP2)

    I have a form (switchboard) that is 26.968 cm wide. I deleted the stuff past 12 cm but cannot reduce the width back to 12, it stays at 26.968cm.

    What is holding this form at this width?

    Try selecting all objects (Ctrl+A) to see if there is a transparent object or a line at the edge that causes this. Even such object can be "seen" by the handles around their edges when they are selected.

    I found that i could open the form in form view and use the save on the file menu, then close and reopen the form and it solves the problem.

    Weird huh, but it is still 26 cm wide in design mode.

    Either the form has become corrupted, or there must still be a control that extends to 26 cm.

    This has happened before, so i am doubting corruption.

    I will try the ctrl A approach.

    Thanks again
