    Main form view (Access 2000)

    When distributing our database to different computers, we obtain different views of the form. Sometimes the form cannot be viewed
    properly becasue it is too large, and sometimes it is normal.Is there any way to make our forms uniform in the different computers?

    I don't know enough about access to properly answer your question, but have a look at this article.

    Re: Main form view (Access 2000)

    In general you will need to design Access forms to use a specific minimum resolution. We used to specify 800x600 small fonts as the minimum, but in many cases we now work to 1024x768 small fonts as the minimum. It is possible to change the size of a form on the fly as indicated in the preceeding post, but then you end up with forms that have to scroll because one of your users wants to run 640x480 large fonts. Life is much simpler if you simply say it won't work at any resolution lower than a certain value.
