Why use a memo feild just use text box 2 250 chars
Just put some code on the Keypress event
if len(memodata)> ??? and QuestionNotAsk = false then
msgbox("you are typing in to much stuff")
QuestionNotAsk = Ture
??? = then number of letter you want the warning to start
you will have to
declear the var @ the top of the Form
Private QuestionNotAsk As Boolean
hope this help
See clear as mud
the aim is store once, not store multiple times
Remember... Optimize 'til you die!
