Default Form size

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to get around the 22" x 22" form size limit?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hey,

I don't think there is anyway you can make the form wider. But you can make it taller by showing the forms header/footer and putting controls or whatever in there.

Just out of curiousity, why do you need to get around this?

Cheers

Rohan

It's because the form is interactive with a record source that could contain anywhere from 8 to 1000 entries.

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin,

Have you ever thought about organizing your form into multiple forms or tabbed forms by categories or function?

When I hear "1000 entries" I hear someone trying to display ALL info in one place, which is usually not a good thing.

Greg,

What I'm developing is a tournament bracket. This bracket is based on multiples of 16. I.E., 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 etc. I've been at events that the entries for just one event exceed 1000. These entries are then bracketed onto a single running form, usually paper. At certain times, there is the possibility of having 2 events running simultaneously.

Thanks for your help,

Kevin
