I used the Access Contacts Template to create my contacts manager database. I have two issues for which I seek advice:

1. When I open the database the template's Contact List Form opens automatically. I have gone to Options, Current Database, Display Form to try to change this but even with a choice of None, it continues to open. If I choose another form to open when database is opened, they both open. How can I get this form (Contact List) not to open when I open the database? This form's Record Source is the template's Contacts Extended Query.

2. The form header on Contact List (nice purple color in the template) goes on to the right to infinity. How do I bring this back to the size of the rest of the form?

Thank you.

1. check to see if there is an AutoExec macro running, that opens the form Contact List.

2. hmm, don't really know on this one. you might add a

DoCmd.Restore

action to the form's Load event procedure, see if that makes a difference.

Yes, an AutoExec macro was running. Easy fix, thank you. I'll keep working on the form header.

to infinity?

That doesn't sound right, does it?

Does a scroll bar appear for the form? If so, can you scroll all the way to the far right? (assuming it does have some sort of limit.)
