Hi,

Within an Access form, I just want to have a placeholder in a text box.  For example, have "Enter Name here".  When the user clicks inside the text box, "Enter Name here" will disapear and they can start typing.

Thanks,
Joel

In the Format property of your Text Box control, set it to the following ...

@;"Enter Name Here"
