    No. But I once tried to simulate a horizontal subform, by using 3 side-by-side subforms each displaying a single record at a time.

    The concept was easy enough. What with smaller screen sizes at the time, if you had a name and address subform, for example, it was hard to get all the data on 1 line. Start with 3 subforms, all with same recordset. Subform #1 initially displays record #1, subform #2 displays record #2, etc. If focus is on 3rd subform and the "Move Right" button was clicked, subform #1 then displayed record #2, subform #2 displayed record #3, and subform #3 displayed record #4.

    I tried this a LONG time ago, I think I was using Access2 at the time! While technically I could get it to work, I could never quite simulate the visual scrolling effect as you moved left and right. Anyway, it had limited use, so I never took it any further.
