    As a work around I assembled some code into a class module that will add features to any Listbox so the column headings will sort when clicked and the column widths are adjustable (to some degree)

    Adding the class and a few lines of code to your form will enable these features to any existing listbox. See the instructions at the top of the code:

    Are you referring to tabbed windows of the Access MDI, or are you referring to the Tab control?

    Would you care to share the add-in that you created or at least provide a demonstration video?

    @John, You got my vote, and thanks for suggesting a work-around. I found this post after Googling this problem.

    I'm adding a suggestion that this feature work in Continuous Forms view, where the filter can vary from row to row.

    In preparation for the future, it would be nice if Microsoft would add support for this.

    There are ways to do this already, but I agree that a built-in method would be helpful.

    One way I do this is to create a large textbox behind all of the controls in the detail section. I create a hidden textbox control in the form header that has the current record ID as the control source. Then I apply conditional formatting to the large textbox when the record ID of the row is the same as the hidden textbox. There are plenty of examples of this available online.

    The disadvantage I've experienced with this method is extra screen flicker when changing records. I think Microsoft could add a property to the format tab of the Form Detail properties for Selected Back Color (similar to the implementation of Alternate Back Color). Their implementation should be faster and have less overhead than my method that flickers.

    @David: While you're waiting you should check out this Enhanced Message Box Replacement. It's open source so you can adjust the dimensions yourself. It also supports Rich Text.

    I'm out of votes but this would be a great addition that shouldn't be hard for MS to implement.

    Do any of the home grown progress bars update as a big query is running?
