    uncommitted value (Access 97)

    How I can see data, which I type in the bound control on the form, directly in the table field?
    I want to grab the text as the user types in a textbox control on the form.
    Thanks <img src=/S/kitty.gif border=0 alt=kitty width=256 height=48>

    Re: uncommitted value (Access 97)

    The Text property of a text box contains the uncommitted value. If you want to do something with it while the user types, there are several events you can use:
    <UL><LI>The OnChange event - this occurs each time the user changes the content of the text box. It doesn't occur if the contents are changed by a macro or by a Visual Basic procedure.
    <LI>The KeyPress event - this occurs when the user types a character; the character is passed to the event procedure and can be changed by the event procedure.
    <LI>The KeyDown and KeyUp events - these events occur when the user depresses / releases a key. This event passes a code for the key that was pressed (including non-character keys such as function keys and arrow keys), and a code that indicates whether Shift, Ctrl or Alt (or a combination of these) was held down.[/list]If you need more information, you can look up these events in the Online help; the Access 97 help contains examples of how to use the event procedures. You can also post back here, with a description of what you want to do.

    Are you really asking about seeing the data in a table as it's being typed into a form? If so, why would you want to?
