Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm using Access PDF functions I made to create a PDF file from a form in Access 2016. I have a "template" set of PDF commands in a table and use the form input to append the PDF commands required to display the data on the template. I decided to use a BMP of the blank form as a form background and then put Access controls above the relevant locations on the background image. That's something I've never tried before. It looks similar to the fill-in PDF forms that I use to fill in tax forms. The problem is that when I scroll down the form, the input controls move relative to the background image. I tried setting Continuous Forms and different Anchoring combinations, to no avail. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

James A. Fortune

Happy New Year everyone!

It turns out that the problem was solved simply by using an image control instead of using a background image for the form.
