By default, Access 2007 applies what we call "control layouts" to the controls on forms and reports. These control layouts make resizing, moving, and aligning controls very easy. However, as you have observed, they do present a distinct problem when you want to make individual
You can remove the control layout applied to a control (or more than one control) by doing the following:
1. Open the form/report in Layout or Design View
2. Highlight the control or controls you want removed from the layout
3. Click the Arrange tab on the Ribbon
4. Click the Remove button in the Control Layout group on the Arrange tab
You can now move/resize that control(s) without affecting other controls.
