Disable and Enable vbTABKEY in Access

I am trying to control the use of the TAB key in my form.  I am able to disable using:

Select Case KeyCode
        Case vbKeyTab
            KeyCode = 0
    End Select

but do not know how to enable it again.  Any idea what I set the value at?  I tried 1 and -1 but it didn't work

Thanks

You're disabling it via code ... the only way to enable it is to comment out that code:

Select Case KeyCode
        Case vbKeyTab
           ' KeyCode = 0
    End Select

Note the ' I placed in from of "KeyCode = 0". This marks the line as a comment, and VBA won't run it.

If you need to selectively disable it, you'd have to include some sort of interface item the code can reference. For example, you could include a Check box named "chkDisableTab", and then do this:

If chkDisableTab Then
  Select Case KeyCode
        Case vbKeyTab
            KeyCode = 0
   End Select
End If

Open in new window


This way, the code will only run if ckDisableTab = True.
