I have just upgraded Access from 2000 to 2010. When I use the Expression Builder and choose among the Elements, Categories, and Values  there is not the option to paste the data into the upper pane. I can type the expression out, but that defeats the purpose of the tool. Is there a solution here?

You might Try Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. As I recall, the Expression Editor in 2010 made some drastic changes, and part of that may have included removal of some of those options.

capricorn1: Double Clicking on the Expression Value places the entire path in the upper pane. That is the solution. What would be wrong with having kept the Paste button?

LSMConsulting: Copy and Paste only put the Expression Value in the pane.
