Flickering Subform!

I am developing a Quotation system in Access 03.
At entry, users enter data thru' a form with subform.
However, the subform keep flicker when I run the system on computer
using runtime. This problem don't happen on set that has full ver of
Access.

Any advise? Pls Help, I have pulled off so much hair on this.

Try putting some message boxes in to determine where the flickering is
happening. For example, if you are re-querying the subform, you would put a
msgbox in before and after the requery. Put in a bunch of them in areas you
think it might be happening. Name them "check point 1" ".... 2" and so on,
or something so you know which message box it hits at.

Compile as an .mde, then test on the runtime machine. Then you can possibly
try putting an application.echo false, then application.echo true around the
points it's happening. That's about the only thing I can think of.

I have a quoting/invoicing package I sell online, and I had major flickering
happening when user's were previewing a quote or invoice. I was dynamically
drawing the fields (width / top / left / font / fontsize, etc.) on the
report based on their preferences, and I was doing this in the Report
OnOpen... Once I moved the formatting of the controls to the report
header_format, the flickering went away. Doesn't sound the same as your
problem, but you never know.

Good luck!
