    Unanswered: Linking Text Boxes to Scroll together

    I just started programming (that is attempting to learn and program) my first Access 2002 project this week.

    Is there any way I can link up several text boxes (which are memo fields) in order that their displayed contents scroll as a unit on a form?

    Thanks

    This is a lot harder to accomplish than it may sound. Take a look at the GetScrollPos and SetScrollPos API functions which are housed within the comctl32.dll (dynamic link library).

    If this is your First project....wheew. Your in for a good one.

    Thanks for the response.

    Yes this is a bit challenging. I find the books to be a little lacking in helpfulness in many areas.

    Thanks for the references to the commands.

    I have my form built and can generate a new page with a button (my first time at programming VBA) - my next challenge is inserting a page and then renumbering certain fields. So much challenge...so little knowledge in my head (at least at this point).
