Hi all,

I want to know some tips/tricks/code samples to convert an Access application 2003 layout to the new Access 2016 layout that is available.
As you can see in the 2 printscreens I have the old layout and the new one.

Is there any way to loop all the controls and update them so that they look more "Alive" and modern?

Any expirence with this?

thanks for your feedback!

Welcome to UtterAccess.

Hm. Access 2013 is VERY similar to Access 2016, so I'm not sure what "new" layout options you are referring to.

Perhaps it's just a matter of making the changes you want?

Oh, sorry. I misread. You are now using Access 2003, not 2013. Sorry.

But the point is the same. You'll need to do this manually, I think. By the time you figure out how to write code to change all of the controls, you'd pretty much have the form's appearance modified.

Besides, how would you write, in code, placement and sizing and alignment of the "new" controls?
