You need to make a separate form to include the information you need to displayed when it opens.

In the click or dble-click event of the comment text box, you open this new form with OpenArgs = ID you have.

In the open argument of this form, bound to the same table, filter records by ID in OpanArgs.

You will have to text boxes on this form txtComment2 (unbound), and txtComment (bount but invisible). The comment box visible gets populated by:

txtComment2 = txtComment

Upon Cancel button (on this new form) you just close the form. But, upon click on Save button (again, on this new form) you save it in the table by:

txtComment = txtComment2

Also make sure to have me.refresh on the OnActive event of your original form.

I want it to tie back to a record --the "remarks" field is apart of that record.

Whether you go with the Access zoom box or create your own form, I would use the double-click event to initiate the action.  If you use the click event, you prevent people from ever editing data in the form, you always have to open the zoom box.  Also, I rarely use code to open the zoom box.  It is too valuable a tool and since I can't or don't want to add a double-click event to every text control on every form, I teach the users how to use Shift-F2.  That way, they can open the zoom box for ANY control on ANY form and I don't have to write code to manage it.

<I would like it to say "Remarks" and not just Zoom...>

you cannot.

the only way to do that is to create a form and open the form in the double click event of the textbox
with an openargs option.
