No, this isn't a title for a new "geek flick" about programming angst.

Ponder this and let me know what you think.

I have a subform (datasheet view) inside of a tab control on a main form. It's on Page 3 of the tab control and its control source is a query independent of the main form. When you actually tab to it, the vertical scroll bar is missing even though the records clearly scroll past the visual range. When you click inside the subform and page down, the vertical scroll bar suddenly appears when you scroll past the last visible record; however, the gridlines disappear. Scrolling back up towards the first record then makes the gridlines appear and the scroll bar remains. Everything is as it should be. Odd, huh?

Any thoughts? Thanks.

That almost sounds like an application driver problem. Access is having problems talking to the display adapter, or something like that.

Does this happen on all machines that run this database? If so, is it an .mdb, .adp, or .mde? If an .mde, then it could still be the application driver. If one of the others, then I am stumped.

Have you recently updated a display adapter driver? Or not updated one? Or have you updated Access from the Office updater?

That is where I would look.

Yes, this happens on all machines. The MDB is on a network drive where only one of three people access it. One's the data entry person, the second is her back-up, and the third is me (database manager). Therefore, at any given moment, only one person is in the MDB.
