Hi.

I am using Office 365  Microsoft Access (continuous form)

I have a textbox in the header section situated exactly above the related Access data field.

When that textbox has focus...............  When a user presses a key,   then I would like to detect this in some way.  My code needs to know what that textbox looks like at that moment so that I can do dynamic filtering on the related field.

My question.  How do I capture the current state of that textbox when the user has made a change to the textbox whilst still in the "edit mode".
