Hi, I have a switchboard which contains command buttons to various other forms.

Is it possible to set a default windon size and screen position on open for each of these forms?

Also how do I get the switchboard form to open automatically when the database is opened?

Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Thanks for this, I am assuming you must place this code within the Form_Load stubs?

Yes, the best place to put the DoCmd.MoveSize code is in the OnLoad event of each form.
