We are using the program MP2 with SQL Server 2000. We've been using this program for many years. Several months ago, a few of the data tables in MP2 lost their vertical and horizontal scroll bars. It's as if those table are improperly sized causing the scroll bars to be off screen. I've tried reinstalling MP2 with no success. Also. all the PCs that use MP2 are affected by this loss of scroll bars.

Can anyone give me some insight into this problem?

Not sure that a sql forum is the best place to get advice on display issues within some application. What is MP2?

never heard of MP2 either, but I know most applications are data-size aware...if the content isn't too big, scroll bars are not needed, so they are not displayed;

is it possible the height/width of the data is less than the display window, so no scroll bars are needed to display all the daata?

MP2 is a Preventive Maintenance Program by Infor.

The reason I think the issue is SQL related is that it shows up on all computers using MP2 and reinstalling the MP2 software doesn't correct this issue.

Just thought I would give this forum a shot. Our IT department doesn't have a clue.

Also, the data tables are definitely too big to fit on screen.

This is sort of like thinking it is the authors fault the print in their book is not in a large enough font.

SQL has absolutely nothing to do with the presentation in any application. It only provides the data, it is up the application to handle the presentation. Check with the vendor of the application.

OK - thanks for the reply. It was worth a shot for me since I know very little about SQL.
