    Hi. I have a main form that has three command buttons, each of which opens a table. Is there a way to set the default size of the window that opens when I click on one of these buttons? In other words, is there a way that I can do this and still efficiently utilize my window space in order to see both most of the form and the table that pops up?

    I am not sure that I understand what you are doing, it is not "normal" in Access to directly Open a Table as that gives users direct Access to all of the data.
    Normally on would open a "Subform" on your current (Main) Form, or you could have a "Tabbed" Mainform and show the Subforms on the Tabs.

    Switch the command button to be using an Opeform command to open a form based upon the table, then a movesize command which will move and resize the opened form.
