Controls collapsed with outline


B

We have a problem with a column of checkbox controls linked to cells. When
a group of rows is collapsed using the outline feature, the controls in the
collapsed portion of the column are eventually all stacked on top of each
other.

Then, when the outline is re-expanded, the checkbox controls are no longer
on top of the cell they were linked to in the column before collapsing the
outline. Instead, the whole group of controls is stacked over a single cell
at the bottom of the collapsed section.

How do we link the controls to the cells so that they will reappear over the
proper cells when the outline is expanded?

Right click on the Checkbox and choose "Format Control" and then the
"Properties" tab for 3 options.

If you used checkboxes from the Control toolbox toolbar, you can:

rightclick on each
Choose Format Control
Then on the Properties tab, select move and size with cells

If you used checkboxes from the Forms toolbar, you're out of luck. Maybe you
could replace them with checkboxes from the control toolbox toolbar.

(or write a macro that hides the checkboxes, then hides the row????)

Thanks, Dave. I had already used the "Format Control" option to mark the
boxes to 'Move' with cells, but still seem to have the problem. Thanks,
however, for the suggestion, I will double check just to make sure.

Thanks,

Richard

Thanks, Dave. I had already used this option to mark the property to "Move
and Size" with the cells. However, we still appear to have the problem. I
will double check, but am skeptical that this was the problem since this
property was already set.

Thanks,

Richard

Make sure your objects are completely with in the cell or row -- all of it!

Thanks, Dave, that could very easily be an issue as the tolerances here are
very close. However, we have snapped the check boxes into the upper left
corner of each cell using the ALT key to constrain the placement. As such,
the object is probably right on the upper and left borders of the cell. If
this is the problem, it would be most disappointing since it, in turn, would
really make proper placement of the check boxes problematic.

Thanks,
Richard

Maybe you could try it with a test copy (smaller number of objects) to see if it
helped.

If it did, adjust the real version -- if not, sorry.
