I have a single form with multiple records.  From time to time, when I leave a field, Access performs a spell check, moving the user to a different record.  Is there a way to stop this?

Also, to prevent Access from moving to another record when you leave a field

1.  Click on the form selector
2.  Open the properties dialog
3.  Click on the "Other" tab and change the value for the "Cycle" property to "Current Record"

There does not appear to be an option to turn off just for access.  Can it be turned off for just a form, or even a field on a form?

changing Cycle to Current Record did not help.  When I left the field, it still opened the spell check.

I found a solution.  Make sure the Name and Control Source are not the same for each text box.  In the Property Sheet > Other > Allow AutoCorrect select no.

This stopped the searching for corrections.
