Sorry friend ... you going to have to create your own as far as I know - this would be easy enough to make it even look the same.

No need to build your own Inputbox.  I tested this code:

and it worked OK.  Thanks for the feedback!

Access, hmm... not my field, sorry.

Maybe App.Title is wrong... try vbNullString instead of App.Title (you must use vbNullString,  ""  won't work)

    EditHwnd = FindWindowEx(FindWindow("#32770", vbNullString), _
       0, "Edit", "")

Or maybe Access doesn't allow any event when InputBox is shown.

If user doesn't use APIs, I think the best is to create his own Dialog form.

I think there is a problem around using FindWindow end also Ex API. I used ActiveForm.hwnd and hWndAccessApp also but doesnot work.

I agree with you about dialog form.

Thanks for reply.
