    copy and paste (Access 2000)

    Sometimes when I open one of my databases the cut/copy/paste functionality is disabled. The databases are secured but I log in with full admin rights. The only way (so far) I can cure this is to reboot the PC. Can anyone explain this?

    TIA

    Is it only cut/copy/paste, or can't you edit records at all?

    Just cut/copy/paste as far as I can tell. When this happens it affects all databases some of which use different .mdw so I don't think it's a security thing.

    A first search hasn't turned up anything useful. If I find anything, I'll let you know.

    Are you copying/pasting forms/reports etc? The reason I ask is that I had an issue where cut/copy/paste disappeared, then the whole DB couldn't use any code!

    It's cut/copy/pasting anything. It's an intermittent problem but when it happens those buttons (menu options and keystrokes too) are disabled. It affects records, fields within records etc. What has got me wondering though is whether it affects other programs ie is it something to do with the Windows API for example. Next time it happens I'll check but by sod's law because I want it to happen it won't <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
