    Hotkeys in designers (XP / Sp2)

    Has anyone got a list of the hotkeys in the various designers <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15>
    e.g. I'm in the Properties window for a report, and I want to switch back to the actual report design surface, and I don't want to key have to reach over for the mouse <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    If you type "keyboard shortcut" in the help index, then click "Keyboard Shortcuts" in the list of topics, you'll get a comprehensive overview of all built-in shortcut keys. This is the list for design view, taken from the help:

    <table border=1> <td>F2</td> <td>To switch between Edit mode (with insertion point displayed) and Navigation mode</td> <td>F4</td> <td>To switch to the property sheet (Design view in forms and reports in databases and Access projects)</td> <td>F5</td> <td>To switch to Form view from form Design view</td> <td>F6</td> <td>To switch between the upper and lower portions of a window (Design view of the Advanced Filter/Sort window only)</td> <td>F7</td> <td>To switch to the Code Builder from form or report Design view (Design view window or property sheet)</td> <td>F8</td> <td>Invokes the field list in a form, report , or data access page. If field list is already open, moves focus to field list</td> <td>SHIFT+F7</td> <td>To switch from the Visual Basic Editor to form or report Design view</td> <td>SHIFT+F7</td> <td>To switch from a control's property sheet in form or report Design view to the design surface without changing the control focus</td> <td>ALT+ENTER</td> <td>To display a property sheet in Design view</td> <td>ENTER or ALT+O</td> <td>To open the selected form in Form view</td> <td>CTRL+ENTER or ALT+D</td> <td>To open the selected table, query, form, report, data access page, macro, or module in Design view</td> <td>CTRL+TAB</td> <td>With focus set to a section, will move the focus to a subsection</td> </table>
