    Lock wizard (2000 SR1a)

    I use the same version of Access on several different computers with pretty well the same set up. On my home machine, every time I add a text box to a form or report from the toolbar, I get this annoying little lock wizard popping up asking whether I want the box locked, enabled or both. I don't recall setting this deliberately nor does it ever pop up on the other machines I use with similar installations that I supervised.

    Regardless of how it got there, is there a place where I can turn it off. I do use the other wizards (combo box, option groups, command buttons) regularly so I don't want to turn them all off. Just this one.

    I've never seen such behavior in any version of Access. Are you sure you don't have some kind of add-in installed at home? That's what it sounds like.

    the only add-in exclusively at home that I can think of for sure is MZTools. I will check. It's not the end of the world. Merely annoying <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    I'm running MZ-Tools and don't see anything like that. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Lock wizard (2000 SR1a)

    Your original intuition was absolutely correct. I had installed months ago Helen Feddema's Design Schemes Addin and completely forgotten about it. When I went through the list just now (fortunately very small) and uninstalled them all and added them back in one by one, that was the offender.

    I will leave it uninstalled until I want it as it is very useful for adding consistency to design features. Thanks for the pointer in the right direction.

    P.S. My running MZ Tools came from a recent post of yours. Most useful!
