    how to retain leading ... in a form? (97)

    i find that when i write several trailing periods (...) in my memo field they're not saved as such. could someone explain why not and if there's anyway around it?

    Arage,
    The Allow AutoCorrect property of the control can be the cause of this. Try to set it to No.

    sorry Francois, my control already had allowAutoCorrect set to yes.

    let me explain a little more what is happening.

    if i type a series of periods (....) they are formatted as a thick vertical line, like so...

    I

    only thicker....

    Arage,

    Set it to NO
    and it won't change it for the new entries. The entries already in the table will to be changed manually, or by a search and replace.
