Change width of column on subform

100+
P: 167
I have a form with a subform and I am trying to change the size of a column on the subform. I am following the instructions in the access help 'Change the layout of a subform in Datasheet view" to change the width but it is not working. The column source is a table and it appears that no matter how I size the column, it remains the size of the "name" of the column from the table. My subform has a FormHeader (with nothing defined for it) and a detail which has many columns. When the subform runs, it is apparently picking up the column headers from the column names on the table. How can I make a column wider?

Just a newbie myself, but have you tried changing the List Width property on the combo box from Auto to a defined width?

Open the form in Datasheet view. Drag the column to the width you want it. Save and close. Now reopen the form and it should retain the width.
