Hi Richard, thanks for your query. This tool may be of use:


Hope this helps,

I was hoping to be able to do this using VBA/VB, but I suspect this is not possible.

Thank you for finding another solution.

Access tip:

Create An Inaccessible Field On A Form

There is sometimes a need to make a field in a form look like a normal field but be completely inaccessible to the user. To do this:

In the Field's Properties
Set the ENABLED property to No
Set the LOCKED property to Yes

The field will not grey out, but the user will not be able to do anything with it.
