Watch this: Make a text box grow or shrink as you resize a form

Chris Downs

When you resize a form, why not take full advantage of the available space? In Access 2007, you can use the anchoring feature to make a control stretch down and across as you make the form bigger, and then shrink as you make the form smaller. Experiment with the available stretching and anchoring options to get the effect you want.
