On a field with dropdown datawindow, if there is no room for
the entries below the field and down to the bottom of the
screen, the dropdown is instead shown above the field.
That is fine.
The problem is if there are just enough entries so that the
last one or two will fit just behind the Windows task bar, I
won't see them.
I am using PB 11.2 and Windows XP.
Any solution to this problem?

What if you set the task bar properties to auto hide or add
a vertical scrollbar to the dropdown datawindow.

The application is distributed to customers, and they
control Auto Hide of taskbar.

A scroll bar does not help. The bottom of the scroll bar is
hidden along with the last couple of lines of dropdown.
