Hi,

I have inherited a system from someone else.
I have a form in which I cannot "Cut and Paste".

There must be some setting on this specific form that is stopping me from cut and paste.

WHere is this setting ?
I have been looking for ages?

Check the enabled property of the controls.  If it is no, you can't select the text in the box.

Folks,

I will close this question and split the points.
For the record I simply rebuilt the form from the beginning.

(I am sure it was something fairly fundamental)
