    Viewing a Form on the FULL SCREEN (Access 2002)

    Since data input people shouldn't have to worry about Title, Menu and other toolbars while they're inputting data, what is the easiest way to have a Form take up the full screen (no bars including, if possible, the Taskbar), leaving the input person to deal only with data. I'm assuming that getting out of this Form would require a "Close" button on the form; is that true? Thanks in advance for any info.

    Click the Properties button In the form's design view. On the Format tab - Views Allowed: Form, AutoResize: No, BorderStyle: None. (The options for Record Selectors, Navigation Buttons, and Dividing Lines can also be set to either display or not.) Click the Other tab. Set Popup to Yes, Modal: Yes, Shortcut Menu: No.

    On the Event tab, OnOpen event: write this event procedure: DoCmd.Maximize. OnClose, write event procedure: DoCmd.Restore. (This only needs to be done if your other forms are not maximized already.)

    Also, as you already guessed, you will need to add a Close Form button.

    HTH.

    Thanks Jon for your reply regarding expanding an Access form to the full screen. Once I realized that I didn't need to type DoCmd in those properties, and that I had to make the two macros (Maximize and Restore), I was off to the races. Thanks again.
