Access Development Tip

I just bought my-self a new PC and a 19in wide-screen monitor. While the actual screen area is 94% of my old standard 19in LCD, the Office VBA window for all versions after Office 97, is now more user-friendly, with the sidebar object browser sitting nicely at the side of the screen, with no loss of characters in the code panel.

In Access 2007, the new Database Window sidebar comes into its own, and also provides a natural border where you can adjust the actual width of a form as you work on it, while the shorter screen enforces a more disciplined form design.
