I need to add the Numeric Key Pad to my Access Form. Has any one done that?

I am using it to a Time Track database where user will use a touch screen and the whole numeric keypad layout will on the Form.

No, but it shouldn't be too terribly hard. Add 9 buttons, label them appropriately and then build whatever Event code you need into the system. I have no experience with touchscreens, but if your app needs to respond to this via the Click event of the button then you can __try__ SendKeys{0} (thru 9, of course) for the relevant key. I personally avoid SendKeys at all costs, but this would be the simplest method. Of course, perhaps the touchscreen would have some other interface you could explore (for eg, perhaps there is some API you could hook that would tell you the screen coordinates the user touched).
