Hello all,
I've been searching for a way to do this, but haven't found anything yet.  Basically, I have a form on which a user can attach files (copies file from original path to a folder set up for attachements, then attaches the file path to the record) using a button.  It has been requested to add Drag and Drop functionallity.  I have no idea how to do this.  Please help.  Thanks in advance!

    Note that Peter's DnD allows you to DnD between.

    List boxes - and updates the underlying record sources
    Text boxes
    Text boxes on different forms

    Text boxes to text boxes on a table control.
    And a whole lot more ...
