I am wanting users to be able to click a button and choose the color they want the backround color of the textbox to be.  I then want the color number to be put in a hiddent textbox field.  I have written the code to save the color number just need the dialog box for color to pop up.
Thanks in advance

NOTE:  Occasionally that site is down lately, or sporadically 'service not available'.  Ran into that just now ... kept trying

And there is this, where I think most of the other code originated from:

Were you able to get to the MVPS site ok?

Keep those links (Lebans and MVPS.org/Access) ... two of the VERY BEST Access sites ever.
