    Copy text to form (2003)

    Hi,

    Users always copy some text from one application to my Access database form. We don't have any problem to copy and paste except the space between two paragraph. If I paste the same text to a new Word document, everything looks fine. But if I paste to Access form, there's a small square box between two paragraph.

    Any idea why this happened and how can I avoid the small square box between two paragraphs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    It must be a problem with the application from which the text is copied. Is it a non-Windows application?
    In general, copying and pasting multiple paragraphs of text into a text box in Access works fine.

    Hi Hans,

    It's a Windows application. It looks fine to paste it in Word.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    That's our inhouse web application.

    Thanks

    I've tried copying text from various web pages into a text box on an Access form and the line breaks were copied correctly in all cases, so apparently the problem is specific to your inhouse web application. I'd consult the developer(s).
