I had posted this awhile back and only just saw the "answer", but when I attempted it- it gave me an error.  Ill post a screenshot of the form I am trying to resize below.  My DB is split and each user has their own front end. Many users want to resize the row height to suit their preferences. Mine in the photo below are stuck too small, and for others they just won't stay where they put them.  I have the front end set so the users cannot access the tables or design functions. The issue is the result of there being no way to SAVE the changes they are making to the layout of the form when they adjust the height. I tried to insert the DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSave, but it will not allow it and throws up an error.  I am at a loss.  Surely there must be a way to do this without giving them access to the design of the forms/tables?

This is because you're using a split form. I don't recommend them because they're notoriously unreliable - it's basically giving your users datasheets to work with. Just like tables and queries, they often don't retain size and position information. Instead, use a continuous form. You have to specify the row height, but YOU CAN SPECIFY THE ROW HEIGHT. And with a little code, you can change it or make it customizable. This is actually on my list for a TechHelp video. Should be coming up soon.
