Hello All.

Have a bound form.  Bound form has Bound textboxes.  If I'm going back to a prior input box I want the info in that bound textbox "selected" so that the user doesn't add info to it but overrides it.....

The bound boxes are formatted "Currency"  problem is, as you probably know, if I've input 20 for $20.00 then it only sees the Len as "2"

My code is ....

Private Sub tAmt_GotFocus()
    Me.tAmt.SelStart = 0
    Me.tAmt.SelLength = Len(Me.tAmt)

End Sub


So it only "selects" 2 characters in my bound textbox...

?????

Is this what you want?
len(format(20,"$00.00"))

No.....a GotFocus event that fires when a textbox gets the focus that selects all that boxes info regardless of what it is......

Add ".Text"

Private Sub tAmt_GotFocus()
    Me.tAmt.SelStart = 0
    Me.tAmt.SelLength = Len(Me.tAmt.Text)
End Sub
