I ran into an interesting issue.  I have an Access DB on a shared drive.  One user is suddenly unable to copy and paste text into a text field on a form.  When I test, this works fine on every other computer but theirs.  On their machine, I am able to copy / paste within other MS Office programs.  Is this a setting issue within their MS Access program?  Thanks.

Possibly a file permissions issue.

Make sure that they have full read/write/delete permissions on the folder on the shared drive.

In addition to mbizup's recommendation, does the application have specific user permissions or roles?  If so, that user might need those permissions modified.

Thank for the quick response.

They can save, edit and delete other files in the shared folder.  They can add records and manually type data into the DB as well.

I checked and there are no user permissions on the DB.

...Can they enter data manually into this control?

Is this issue only for one field?

Make sure the control source for this control is something like this:
Control Source|  SomeField
...and not something like this:
Control Source|  =SomeField

Also try simply deleting this field/control and dropping it in again...

I deleted and dropped the field into the form again.  I also ran compact / repair and everything seems to be OK again.  Weird issue.  Thanks for the help!
