Initially, I had a split form, which had a header area that was fixed, even though the detail area was longer than the screen.
as you scroll to the right, the data displays with the scroll bar movement, but the header is fixed.
The detail area was a crosstab query which displayed as a datasheet.
Now i tried to implement a progress bar in the detail area, but because this was not possible to have in the detail area,
I then tried to place the progress bar in the header area.
So I tried changing this to a composite form. This solved the issue of being able to have a progress bar, in the header area.
So as we scroll across to the right, we can see the progress bar, and label headings aligned with the detail area which contains the crosstable query via text elements.
But the issue with this composite form, is such that there area command buttons in the header area, and date text element, that should not disappear, when we scroll to the right.
My question is therefore what is the best solution to use the continuous form for data in the detail area, with progress bar in header area, that are both aligned. And then to have a header area that contains pushbuttons and text elements that should be fixed in their header location.
Would a subform holding the pushbuttons/text elements be fixed to not scroll as the user uses the scroll bar. ie. similar to using a split form.
Thank you kindly
