Subform screen problem

P: n/a
Hoping some can help.

Have a subform that is working fine except if you swap to another
application and then back to the access form when you do that the area over
the subform is not updated correctly and display the previous application.

Hopfully some has the answer!

I've noticed that on Windows XP systems. My guess is it's some sort of
display bug (whether in the O/S or Access is the question). If you use
the Alt-Tab method of switching between applications it doesn't seem to
happen as much. If you click the application icons on the taskbar it
happens more often. When it does happen you can get the "real"
application to appear by clicking on the display. If that doesn't work
click back & forth on the taskbar application icons until it does
appear. A Wonky Work-around.

Hi,

Just an idea (that I haven't tried...)

Private Sub Form_Activate()
Me.Refresh
End Sub

Thanks for the reply, but it is running on W2K with the same problem. I
have noticed that it must be a property of the main form as if I copy a
subform from another form that works then I get the same problem.

I have check through the properties but can't see anything that should cause
the problem.

Thanks for your help, tried that but still happening.

Have tried cuting and pasting a subform in the same application that is
working. When I do that I still get the same problem so I fairly sure it
must be something to do with a property on the main form.
