Hi All

I have a subform in single form mode that has a note field. Because I have enter behavior set to highlight field when I move between records,  the whole of the note fields text is highlighted. This means that if someone accidentally presses a key on the keyboard the whole note field is deleted to allow new data to be entered. I don't want to alter the default enter behavior because it is usefull elswhere and I don't want to set the focus to another field because that will be highlighted and suffer the same problem.

So what I need in the OnCurrent property of the subform is
If "Notes" (The Note Control)  has focus then move cursor to end of field or text.

On the Enter event of your textbox that contains your notes (which gets fired when you enter the field) do this:


private sub tbMyField_Enter()
     me.tbMyField.SelStart = me.tbMyField.SelLength
end sub
