    can grow/can shrink (Access 97)

    I have a report that used to work wrt can grow/can shrink of controls in the detail section. I have moved these controls to the right and i now have an image file displayed to the left of these controls.
    I have found that this disables the can grow/can shrink of the controls and we are left with holes where it used to shrink correctly.

    Is there a way around this?

    Not that I know of Patt.

    This Knowledge Base Article says:

    "Controls shrink line by line (vertically). This means, for example, that if there is a group of controls placed on the left side of the page and a large control (for example, an OLE picture) on the right side of the page, the controls on the left side of the page will not shrink, unless the picture is blank and hidden."
    Regards

    Thanks John, i thought i was stymied.

    What i may do is to test what controls are null to start with then position them on the page and leave blank controls at the bottom, that way hopefully the blank controls at the bottom will shrink.
