Text Data Type Field Problems

Text Data Type Field Problems

Text Data Type Field Problems

(OP)
I've got a text field in an Access database that is formatted for three (3) characters.

If I type "BVE" in the field and then exit the field, the feld changes to "BE".
What gives?
If I type "BvE" or "BVG" i.e., it works ok.
I would welcome any suggestions.

RE: Text Data Type Field Problems

What do you mean " ... formatted for three characters ..."  

If this refers to the width property of a control, you have probably sized the thing (text box?) with a specific set of characters.  When you enter "true type" font characters, the width of the three characters varies with the letters/characters.

If you are refering to the table field width, the above does not apply, however you may have some autospell check feature "correcting" your spelling.

RE: Text Data Type Field Problems

From a VBA for Access 2000 module/procedure, how can I determine which field of an open form the cursor is in, i.e., has the focus. If I could poll for either the name or the tab index, that would meet my need, but I have not found a property command that will will give me the information I need.
Thanks for any hints.

pic,

You would, in general, probably get better response by posting a new thread/question when your topic is doesn't relate to the existing question.

For an answer to your question above, try loooking at the "active Control" property of the form.
