    Unanswered: Go to End of Line in New Record

    How would I have the cursor go to the end of a line in a new record of a form?

    I have some autotext that comes up (thanks to this forum) but when the new record starts with the text highlighted and if one of the monkeys that I've got typing the works of Shakespeare hits a key when it's hightlighted it'll go away. And I don't want that.

    Did that make sense?

    The code Nick gave you the link for will work if this is an off-one problem, but if you have this problem with a more than one field, you might want to set the default behavior for the entire database to go to the end of the data in all fields. Over the years this is what I have found to be the safest strategy.

    Goto Tools - Options -Keyboard and set Behavior Entering Field to "Go to end of field." You can either do this to every user's copy of Access, or simply to the copy used by the Shakespearean monkey!

    Monkeys appear to be a real problem this week! Another friend just complained to me about having trouble with some "flying monkeys!"
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything that fools are so darn ingenious!

    I'm not sure the monkeys are trainable. Once I show them this easy to use tool, (ook, move cursor, click button) they'll raise hell and say it's too hard.

    Thanks for the notes!
