Default Sub Form Field Size

Hi All
I have a sub form that has 15 fields.The trouble is that I need to have the fields lined up across the form. Has anybody any idea what I can do so that I don't have to scroll across the form or is there any other method can organise this process better

Hmmm... 15 across? Would they be better off in datasheet view? Even then, unless your screen resolution is set small AND your fields are very small, too, you cannot show them all in one screen.

Why so many? What's in them?

I've put rows on two lines before (continuous or single form) in order to make them fit. I make sure to add a demarcation line so that you can tell where the records change. Getting the headers to look right and be able to be user friendly enough so they know what you're doing can be a challenge though.
