MS Access "Behavior Entering Field"

Hi

We are on Access 2010. In previous versions of Access the cursor would go where you clicked in a form field. So if there was an existing sentence in the field and noticed something wrong, then you could click in the middle of the sentence and make an amendment.

Since 2010 it appears that you no longer have this flexibility. Rather you need to chose between one of three options; entire field, start of field or end of field. (Plesae refer attachment). Since they are radio buttons, you seem to have to select one.

Is there any way to go back to having the cursor simply stay in the place in the field where you clicked ?

You still can click anywhere in a text control in Access 2010 and start entering text in the middle of a sentence (unless you have code or macros custom written to prevent that -- either deliberately or inadvertently).

The behavior entering field is what happens if you tab to a field for example, but clicking somewhere in the middle of your text will place the cursor where you click.

Thanks. It was a darn piece of code running in a subform that invoked tab like behaviour. I removed the code, problem solved.

There you go :-)

Access 2010 is a very good product overall
