I am trying to add a textfield to a popup menu (like in MS Access when you right click in a column and it gives the option to "Filter For:" and when you click on it, in the same menu it has a text box next to the heading that allows you to type in a string.

i do not think it is posible in VB .. VB popup menus are nothing but the normal form menus called using the "popmenu" command .. this can basically just contain text .. u could think of opening a form when user selects a menu item .. this form could contain the controls u require ..

Windows menus can't do this.  The MS Office team spent a good deal of time developing new menu controls so Office programs can do that kind of thing, but they didn't bother sharing their new menus with anyone else - they're only useable by Office.  If you want this type of feature, you have to implement the menus yourself.  At minimum, you'll need a form, a standard module, and a bunch of Windows API calls.

Take a moment to consider whether this is worth the trouble.
