how to change the form size in Design view

P: n/a
Hello,
I want to make a form based on a table with many records. I used the
wizard to make a 'form in table layout'. The wizard is not able to
make the form due to too many fields. I discovered that the standard
form properties gives a maximum form width of 55.873cm (22 inch). How
do I change this width and enlarge it to e.g. 70cm so the wizard will
be able to make the form?
Thanks for your help,
Sylvia

Hi, Sylvia.

You can't. You'll need to design your form differently to accommodate so
many controls, or you'll need to base the form on a record source that has
fewer fields defined, such as a query.
