Access Form Scrollbars

P: 23
I'm hoping this is an easy question but here goes. What would cause a form to load and not be positioned at the top of the form?

I have a main form with a subform. Inside the subform, I have pages/tabs setup. When the main form is loaded, the subform is scrolled down the page and you cannot see what is at the top of the subform. What would cause this? And how do I fix it? It also happens when you click some of the page tabs (the subform automatically scrolls down the page onload). I thought it would be a simple form property, but am unsure of which one.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks so much,

Not sure, personally, since I really don't use subforms (no need for them yet). But the first thing that came to my mind was to check your Tab Order on the form (or subform). It may be that something near the bottom of your form (or subform) is at the top of the Tab Order list.

I'm equally limited on subform experience, but that does sound like a sensible answer.

The cursor always goes to one of the controls on a form or subform. This is controlled by the tab order. It stands to reason this is what's causing your situation.

Let us know how you get on with this.

It's probally being caused by the subform being larger than it's control on the main form. You will either have to reduce the size of the actual subform or increase it's control size.

Actually, I suspect it's a function of both of these things! A control near the bottom of the tabbed page getting focus and the tabbed control being too long. Can't really say I've ever seen tabbed pages on a subform.
