Continuous Subform showing as Single form

P: n/a
I have a subform (one of 3) on a main (unbound) form.
The problem sf is the first one on the form, and one the user uses to select
a record on which data in the other 2 sf's are based.
All sf's are set to continuous forms, but the first one displays as single.
ie only one record shows although the underlying recordset contains more
than one record.
The record selector for the only record which shows, runs the full height of
the sf. .
I am beginning to think that it may be corrupted, but before I start
rebuilding it, I wondered whether anyone else had a similar experience.
I am using A2002 on WinXP Pro.

Open the sf in question in design view. Drag all of the fields to the top of
the detail section side-by-side across the form. Go to the bottom of the
detail section and drag it up until it's touching the bottom of the fields.
See if this takes care of the problem.

Thanks Reggie.
That was the last thing I would have thought of.
Also the most logical.
Tells a story .. doesn't it?
