How do you make a list made visible push down rest of form information

P: 1
Thanks to these forums I have learned how to make a list of check boxes visible/not visible based on the value of another check box. However, the purpose of this is to save room on the form. Therefore, when the check box is checked and the new, now visible list of 5 check box items shows up I would like the remainder of the form items to be pushed down, upon the click. Right now there is a big empty space if the check box is not checked and this makes the form look awkward and does not save any room.

Any help would be great!!

Even though the boxes are invisible they are still there so you cannot change the size of the form without moving each one using code and then using code to put them back in place when they are visible again. You would also have to move any labels. Its a LOT of code for very little reward.

If your check boxes are in an option group frame you don't even have this option.

I've also found that resizing the form dynamically, although it is accepted, will not have any effect on the displayed size of the form.

Nice idea but Access (I tried with 2K) doesn't seem to support it.
