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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
