 I have a form that is diplayed full screen, no access titlebar, etc.....it is setup as a popup form.

  The problem I'm having is I can no longer paste using the Docmd.Runcommand acpaste....
  I assume it is copying, but maybe not.  At least I know that if I paste I get an error, telling me I can't do so in this mode.

  It used to work great, but as soon as the popup mode is set to yes to make form full screen, it doesn't.

  I have the last of my points for any help...
  Thanks,
   Craig

What are you trying to copy and paste? A record? An individual piece of data?

Use the sendkeys command and send the Paste command.

Sendkeys "^V",true

Sorry.....a record....

I copy the current record.....with acsecelect, accopy, acnewrec, and finally acpaste....and that's the point it fails.

Nope.....^V doesn't work.

When you do it, there is nothing to paste.  

So I did a ^C to copy and then a ^V at the appropriate place, and that doesn't work either.  I need to somehow be able to select a single record.  Of course, the only select shortcut is ^a....select all....and that doesn't work.

  Any other ideas??

To have your runcommand work you need the default menus to be there. Otherwise the menuitem is not found and therefore it will not work. I suppose you don't have the default menu displayed at the moment you try to copy/paste.

Nope, no menus......so that's why I'm looking for another way to copy/paste a record.

Exactly what I told you: use another way to do it. No macro's are sufficient. You'll have to use VBA to get to the recordset and copy the record's contents so you can perform an addnew on another recordset.
