    Zoom a field (Access XP (2002 sp-1))

    I'm diagnosing a database that has a field that you can zoom by pressing Shift+F2.

    I looked everywhere in the properties of the field and I cannot find any indication of how this is done.

    Please shine the light over here.

    That capability can be used on almost any field in an Access database - it isn't a property. About the only field you can't zoom on is a boolean field.

    Hi Gene...

    I don't think Wendell's around at the moment, so I'll jump in...
    You don't "create" that capability... It just is... It's part of Access itself... Put your cursor on almost any field in any table of the database and hit Shift-F2... It'll Zoom...

    Oh, now I get it. Thank you. I wasn't aware of function key behavior in Access. I appreciate it!

    You can create that functionality in code, for instance, in the DblClick event of a textbox. I often build that into my applications so that all the user has to do is double click a field to have it zoom. The code command is simply

    RunCommand acCmdZoomBox.
