Control of horizontal scroll bar

Control of horizontal scroll bar
Views: 145
I am working on a searchable form (left side is for entering criteria and right side is for displaying records matching criteria). The width of the form currently exceeds my screen so I see a horizontal scrollbar on the bottom. I would like to add a command button that when clicked will cause the scrollbar to move to the right. Can anyone assist

Move subform with horizontal scroll bar

Move subform with horizontal scroll bar Icon
I use a subform on a mainform as a type of menu selection. I want to keep the subform in the middle of the screen when the mainform horizontal scroll bar is moved.

Is there an event on the horizontal scroll bar I can use? What method is used to move a subform on a main form?

Scroll Bars

Scroll Bars Icon
I have a master form with two sub forms.

The scroll bar property of the two sub forms is identical, it is set to "both" but one sub form shows a vertical and horizontal scroll bar, and the other sub form shows only has a horizontal scroll bar?

There is enough vertical/horizontal data so each form should be showing both scroll bars

Horizontal Scroll Bar in List Box not showing

Horizontal Scroll Bar in List Box not showing Icon
I have added a ListBox to a popup form which is intended to display the most recent records added via the form. The problem lies within the fact that there are over 20 columns, all of which are meant to be displayed, yet the horizontal scroll bar which I expected to help me with this is missing.

From the reading I have done, it appears that if the sum of the widths of all the columns exceed that of the listbox, a scroll bar will automatically appear. This has, however, not happened.

Could anyone suggest any reasons for this, or how I can resolve this?

Scroll bar Issue

Scroll bar Issue Icon
I'm having two issues with scroll bars.

I've Main Form (frmMain) which is just showing two combo boxes to filter results of the sub form. In the main form (frmMain), I've continuous sub form (fsubSchool).
In sub form (fsubSchool), records are showing as Tabular form.

Scroll bars are active on both forms (frmMain & fsubSchool)

Ok the issue is that, When I'm on the main form, and I move through records of the sub form, the horizontal and vertical scroll bar of the main for does not move accordingly. Due to this when I move through records of the sub form using Tab key on keyboard, I've to manually scroll through horizontal bar to see on which record I'm currently on.

2nd issue is that, the scroll bars movement (scrolling) is not so accurate, how to make it real that it should only appear when it's needed & should scroll smoothly.

I hope you got my point.

please guide me how to fix both issues.
waiting anxiously for kind

main form mouse wheel scrolling disabled when subform control is active

main form mouse wheel scrolling disabled when subform control is active Icon
I have a form in Access 2007 which contains subforms. On the subform I disabled vertical bars so that I could scroll down and up using only scroll bar of the main form.

When a subform field has a focus, the (vertical) scroll of mainform is disabled (I.e. I can't scroll down the page with mouse wheel)I have to click on scroll bar and move down.

How can I enable mousewheel for that purpose?

Setting multi-line text field to have both scroll bars and no line wrap, how?

Setting multi-line text field to have both scroll bars and no line wrap, how? Icon
Access 2007 on Windows XP

I am not seeing a property setting to enable a horizontal scroll bar for a text field.

And also I need to disable the control from doing line wrap.

Basically I want Access to display the text as-is and do no reformatting.

I have set my font to a mono-space font, so that point is successfully covered

Form Scroll Bar

Form Scroll Bar Icon
I have a subform that is a datasheet. The vertical scroll bar does not display a bottom arrow. In fact when I scroll down through about 2000 records, to get to the bottom, I drag the slider off the form and it still keeps scrolling. Dragging the slider to the bottom of the visible scroll bar only takes me half way through the records. Using Access 2003.

Scrollbar/Slider Bar on a Continuous Form

Scrollbar/Slider Bar on a Continuous Form Icon
I am using the Microsoft Forms Scrollbar 2.0 ActiveX object. I have embedded it in a continuous form. I have connected the on updated event to populate a bound text box. So far so good. Problem is my scrollbar, which appears on every visible row, moves in unison. If I scroll on the first record, all the rest of the scrollbars scroll. only the text box on the first record updates though. If I scroll on the 2nd record, the same thing, they all move, but only that record updates. So functionally it is doing what I want it to do, but cosmetically it looks crazy to see all those scroll bars moving. It is also confusing to the user.

I tried binding the scroll bar to a Control Source, but Access would allow a bound ActiveX control on a continuous form.

Does anyone have a suggestion? I'm willing to consider anything from a fix to starting from scratch, whichever is the simplest and the quickest.

Adding Scroll bar to a form

Adding Scroll bar to a form Icon
I am pretty new to using Access database. I am using the Assets template in the Access. I have added several fields to the 'Asset Detail' Form in the layout view but I can't see these fields in the actual form because they are at the bottom of the form and there is no scroll bar. I have checked the properties of the form but I cant find a place where I can update the property for scroll bars. Can someone please guide me as to where can I change this property so that the form will have a scroll bar

Pop up reports maximise issue

Pop up reports maximise issue Icon
I have Reports which are pop up and are maximised on load. This is what I require.
However when this happens, sometimes the reports open and fill the screen which is what I want. However the windows taskbar at the bottom hides the horizontal scroll bar. Also it only shows the windows task bar sometimes depending on what other programmes are open and sometimes the pop up report will cover the windows task bar.
