Form pops up when not supposed to....

Hello,

  I have several forms in my project, three of which are named frmAddProduct, frmEditProduct and frmReview.  These are all MDI child forms.  Under the frmReview and frmEditProduct form, there is a text box which has this code for the keydown event:

Private Sub txtReview_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If Shift = 2 And KeyCode = vbKeyA Then
    Me.txtReview.SelStart = 0
    Me.txtReview.SelLength = Len(Me.txtReview)
End If
End Sub

(the name of the text box on the frmEditProduct form is 'txtDescription')

Which basically just selects all the text in the text box when Ctrl-A is pressed.  When I press Ctrl-A, it selects the text in the box, but then frmAddProduct appears for no reason.  I have the same code in the frmAddProduct for the keydown event for a text box called txtDescription, which works without popping up any extra forms.  Whats going on here?

You can look at the keypreview property of you forms. Maybe the value is true.

If this won't work you can set the visible property of each form to true and manually set the visible property

Do you have a shortcut key assigned to Ctrl-A ?
