Selecting a table record in datasheet view

Selecting a table record in datasheet view

Selecting a table record in datasheet view

(OP)
Does anybody know of how a record can be selected from a datasheet view of a table using keystrokes.  The only way in which an operator can select a specific record is by clicking on the record selector using the mouse.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Shift+Spacebar   selects a row
Ctrl+Spacebar     selects a column

Dear Jim

Many thanks for your assistance which works if the Keyboard Option 'Behaviour Entering a Field' is set to Select Entire Field.

Do you know of any way of changing this setting for different forms or even text boxes within a single form?

Many thanks in anticipation.

RE: Selecting a table record in datasheet view

You could use the following code when you open and close a form (remember to set it back on close, if you want to keep it the same as you had before you opened it):

----------
Private Sub Form_Open()
   Application.SetOption "Behavior Entering Field", 1
End Sub
----------

----------
Private Sub Form_Close()
   Application.SetOption "Behavior Entering Field", 0
End Sub
----------

The value at the end of the SetOption line is either 0, 1 or 2.

0 = Select Entire Field
1 = Go To Start Of Field
2 = Go To End Of Field

Hope this helps.
