Hello
I want my text boxes to have the same lenght as the database fields and don't let the user to write after that lenght so it doesn't give me the error that I exceed the lenght of the field.
Can you help me?

Thanks
Alberto

The first solution
You have to set all your textbox.maxlength to the length of your field :

tbTextbox.MaxLength = Fields(4).FieldSize

The second solution
You can take all the maximum needed left character of your textbox in your record. This will ignore extra characters :

Fields(4).Value = Left(tbTextBox.Text, Fields(4).FieldSize)

NB : Adapt the code for your needs.
