    Tabbing Into a Memo Field (97) (Access 97)

    Is there a property I can set, or other method to define where the cursor goes when tabbing into a memo field? Currently when I tab into a memo field on a form, it highlights all the text in the memo. I am wanting to go into the memo by tabbing, and allowing the user to date stamp the memo and begin typing. However, it currenlty requires the user to take their hand off the keyboard and click the mouse before they begin typing. Otherwise, it deletes all the text. AAAAHHHH! ! !!

    Thanks in Advance for any ideas.

    Recommend use On Enter event for Memo fields. Example:

    Private Sub COMMENTS_Enter()

    With Me.COMMENTS
    .SelStart = 0
    .SelLength = 0
    End With

    End Sub

    In example COMMENTS is a memo field on form.
