I have a really annoying problem where a small line is appearing in the top left corner of my form. It's not a control or anything that I inserted. I have tried everything to remove it with no luck. In design mode it simply doesn't exist but it appears in form view.

Does anyone have a suggestion to remove the line?

I have attached an image. Thank you

Please describe "everything". Perhaps there are potential solutions that you haven't considered.

I have opened it in design mode and moved all the existing controls away from that area. I adjusted the form header width but the line always appears under the form header. I'm not sure what else to try. I think the only way a line could appear there is if it's coming from a control and when I move all the controls out of that area the line is still there. It's like it doesn't exist in design mode but is somehow appearing in form and layout view. I've never seen this before. I guess I could recreate the form but I would rather not at this point because I need to deploy the database soon.

?any chance your form has header(s)/footer(s) with controls in them?

… and you may end up having to re-create the form if you can't get rid of that and/or can't live with it. How long do you think it would take to recreate? How much time have you already spent trying to find that?

Hi. Just a guess, but does turning the record selector off make any difference?

This is a bit of a long shot, granted. Do you have a layout grid on the form? In some ways, the resembles what happens when you have empty cells in a layout with a zero height set.

Wait, I overlooked this line in one of your responses. "It's like it doesn't exist in design mode but is somehow appearing in form and layout view." That makes me think even more it's an empty cell in a layout grid.

Yes, it was the record selector. I didn't even consider that because it didn't look like the record selector was even there. I must of minimized it somehow and forgot. Thank you so much and thanks to everyone else for the suggestions.
