Hello Experts
Does anyone know if page up/down navigation through records on a form can be turned off?  I want the user to use the navigation buttons I’ve provided on the form to navigate next and previous.  These buttons have code behind them that evaluate the data of the navigated to record and formats the text, hides or makes visible select data elements.  Or is there an “On Next Record” action that I can apply code to?  
Thank you

In design View right-click your form and select Properties. Under the Format tab, change "Navigation Buttons" to No.

Thanks for your response Flyster, but changing "Navigation Buttons" to No does not stop navigation with [Page Up] or [Page Down] on user's key board.  Do you know of a way to prevent navigation as described?

Regarding the above code, put it in the On Key Down Event (Properties - Event Tab). If you use the code builder, the first and last lines will already be added.
