Inserting character using custom menu

I have an Access 2003 database with a large text field.  

I have created a custom shortcut menu with one of the options being to put a bullet point at that cursors location.

It does what it should and adds the bullet point, but the AfterUpdate is not triggered when I leave this field (unless I add some addional text).  

Any ideas?

You could try making the AfterUpdate event of your field Public and then call it from your procedure that adds the bullet point.  The call would look something like:  Call NameOfYourForm.NameOfFieldWithBullet_AfterUpdate
