I have a form with several text boxes on it. Is there any way to clear all of the text boxes at once without individually setting their .text = ""?

RE: Access basic 97

Here is a Brute force approach with no error trapping,

Sub ClearForm()
Dim frm As Form, ctl As Control

' Set the current form as the target
Set frm = Screen.ActiveForm
' Enumerate Controls collection of each form.
For Each ctl In frm.Controls
' Print name of each control.
If ctl.ControlType = acTextBox Then
ctl = ""
End If
Next ctl
End Sub
