Hello,
I am having a really hard time with MS Access. Every time after I enter the first line information and enter to the next new line, it keeps changes the keyboard input to Chinese. And I  have to keep switching it to English. But it switches back to Chinese again when a new line appears.
I have changed in Access Option fonts all to Tahoma. And my default keyboard input is English.
Though my computer setting is Chinese. Would that be the reason that cause it?
All my data informations are in English, so it is really annoying when I  have to keep switching it every new line. (Considering there will be more than 300 more new lines to be entered.)
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

Yes, Access is trying to be *smart* and detect you computer settings, the same way it does for Tinme, Currency, etc. I'm not sure there is anything you can do, but let me take a look around to see what I can find.

Have you set the  KeyboardLanguage property to 9 (english) for all your textbox and combobox controls?

I know next to nothing about switch languages, have you looked at the

Have you tried using the SETLANG.EXE tool?
It's usually here:

I tried the SETLANG.EXE and removed Chinese (It listed Chinese and English as enabled editting type) But that didn't fix it :( It still kept switching =s

I don't see KeyboardLanguage for the textbox or combo box, but from the field property I do see 'IME Mode' which is the Chinese typing language. I set it off. And that fixed the problem :] I only need to turn the IME mode off in the every field and that will fix the whole columns. Which  is a whole lot better than keep switching the input type for 300+ types.

Thank you very much for your helps =)!
