    Form Re-Writes (A2K)

    Good evening all,

    I have attached a database for demonastration purposes only and now I will try to discribe what happens.

    When frm Meter Information opens or if I scroll up and down using the navigation bars, either in design view or formatting view, the form seems to continuously re-draw itself.

    Has anyone every experienced this before and if so is there a way to correct this?

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    I'm using Access 2002. After removing a reference to a non-existent add-in, I had no real problems, either in design view or in form view. There is some screen flicker caused by maximizing the form in the On Open event, but no continuous redrawing. If you don't maximize the form, the screen flicker doesn't occur.

    Recommend delete the embedded bitmap, or find one that does not cause the horrid repainting effect when scrolling. I would not recommend using embedded graphics or controls with shadow effects, etc. See attached zip file, modified version of db. Deleted embedded graphic from both forms, replaced with plain white background. The modified form does not flicker or seem to repaint itself when scrolling up or down. (Note that different monitors & video cards may not display flickering to same degree as others, but mine did, and it looked awful.)
