I recently purchased Access 2007, after using 2000 for years. I'm having quite a problem with designing or customizing the forms. When I try to drag a field to a different size, ALL the fields are linked and all of them respond to the modification. Say, for instance I have a memo field that I want to enlarge in Design View...I can't without dragging all the fields the same distance.

How do I separate the objects so I can customize them separately? I've tried this both in design view, and also by allowing Access to create a form for me.

I am assuming you used the Forms button to create your form. If you did, the fields are kind of grouped. You can ungroup them by highlighting all of the fields and go to the Arrange tab on the ribbon and choose Remove under the Control Layout area.
