    Unanswered: Moving/Scrolling text


    I have developed an access database in micro soft 2002 and I want to have a moving message generated on a form when I open the form.

    I saw that there is this control "Scrolling Text" but it is only activated in "Pages" not in "Forms".

    Is there any way I can get text to move across the "Form screen" when it loads?

    Your help will be great!

    Looking for a Marque eh????

    How you can implement in Access:

    Use a timer.
    Make label with text to scroll.
    In timer event, subtract 1 character from the front and add to the end of the string (or vice-versa for a reverse scroll)
    Set the timer event to fire under a second to get the "rolling" effect ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...
