Num Lock getting off by accident and creating problem in records
Posted on 2006-04-01
I use Microsoft Access in my business. I am having a problem with the Num lock key, it gets hit by accident and the keys on the keyboard start acting as Page Up, Down, etc which creates a problem when we are entering a new record. For instance, I have a form to enter new Contracts, there are some fields that require numeric characters, but when the num lock key is hit by accident, and then a series of numbers are hit in the keyboard, then the form jumps to an older record, due to the num lock being off, and now this records can be changed. For this reason the data in the older records have been changed as the employee keep hitting the numbers assuming num lock is on. Is there any way to either make num lock always on even when the num lock key is hit, or something else that can be done within Microsoft Access?
Thanks in advance for the help.
