I would like to count the number of characters entered in a access field, using VBA.
The field I wish to count is called FDDATA and is a text field of 255 characters.
I wish to show the person inputing how may characters remain for input counting down from 255 and display this result in an unbound field called fldCounterRemaining
I would like to allow for deletions and backspaces to be taken into account.
Could some give me a working routine.
Thanks in advance
