Can we get a bit more information.

What, Where, When etc.

Flicker is often caused by Form Timer events that have been turned on and/or Mouse Move Events that are in use.

Also ... sometimes Conditional Formatting can cause flicker - sometimes.

Also, are you saying flickering as in a constant blinking on/off???


Is it a flicker when the form is re-queried???

What I generally do is load any unbound Text Controls using the form's Load Event.  Something like ....

Me.TxtMyFieldName = [SomeField] + [SomeOtherField]
