Changing size of control on form

P: 21
I am using Access 2007 and used the form wizard to create a form. I now want to change the size of a textbox, but when I do so it also changes the size of other textboxes on the form. How can I change just one?

Thanks in advance.

Are the controls grouped together in any way? When you select one, are all the boxes selected? Is there an option for ungrouping them? I've tried to produce the same in A2003 but I don't seem to be able to reproduce it. Sorry I can't be of more help!

Thanks.

The controls are not grouped (apparently) - the one I select is the only one shown as selected, but when I make the change all the controls change. This happens whether I resize using the handles or by changing the properties. I don't seem to be able to ungroup the controls.

No. If I create a form without the wizard I can change it OK. But if I use the wizard the controls seem to be looked together and I cannot change them individually. Is this a known limitation of the wizard, or is there something I am doing wrong?

It is very frustrating to use the wizard to create the forms (making life very easy) and then having difficulty editing the form (making life very difficult!)

Any further suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
