Optimizing Continuous Form Size

A "Continuous Form" is one of the form types that can be generated by Microsoft Access. It can display a variable number of rows of data with a fixed number of columns. This type of form is often used for displaying a list of items with related information such as Item Number, Item Description, Item Price, etc. Data fields are displayed in a format similar to a spreadsheet table.
This document describes a method of dynamically optimizing the vertical size of a Continuous Form to fit the number of rows of data to be displayed—on any screen size and resolution. For continuous forms that do not fill the Access window top to bottom, a method of vertically positioning them is suggested.
Dynamically adjusting the size of continuous forms can be valuable, especially in Access applications that will be distributed to a number of locations having different screen sizes and different screen resolutions.
The sample Access database to which this document refers ("Optimizing Continuous Form Size.mdb") was developed using Access 2003 in Access 2000 file format, and has been tested successfully under Access 2000, 2003, and 2007. A bit of the code has run under Access 2010.
