My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and i use office 365 the home edition. I have a small database created on Access 2013 which contains contact information. From time some data fields get deleted whenever the cursor is resting in a field with the contents highlighted. i would like to protect ALL the fields so that the data will not get deleted when such accidents take place, therefore i want to delete the data in a field only when I click on a command button to specifically to do so, and which will ask for confirmation, and if no confirmation is received within 5 seconds, then the transaction should be cancelled. Can the experts please suggest how i can implement this feature in the most efficient way by way of code. Thank u.
