Does anyone know of a way to make a text box on a form in an Access 2002 database only accept positive currency values (or maybe always switches it to a positive on exit)?

Add this code to the after update event of your textbox:

Private Sub txtYourTextbox_AfterUpdate()
    me.txtYourTextbox = abs(me.txtYourTextbox)                     '*** Use the absolute (unsigned) value
end sub
