    Too Much Empty Space in Form View (2003)

    On the startup form of the attached mdb, select Jan 2, 2006 on the calendar and click the "Counter Readings" button. You can see in the form that opens there's a wide gap between the Detail and Form Footer sections which is not there in design view. What's causing it?

    The size of your form. Resize your form in design view, click save, and then view it again. Since your form's size is set in design view, Access doesn't automatically resize the form to fit the # of records, it just throws in blank space. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    What about the startup form of the attached mdb? I've tried going in design view and resizing the form but I can't eliminate the empty space at the bottom.

    Your 2 sub-form controls need to be reduced in height. You will then be able to reduce the height of your tab control.
