    Is there a way to turn off auto highlighting (Access 2000)

    I have a situation that occurs after I have been working in my databases for a while where a flag is being set in Access to auto highlighting from the end of a string to where ever i click in the string. It's as if the cursor is always set to the end of a string and when I click in the middle of the string it is as if I was holding down the shift key to select all of the end of the string. Is there a way to set this off so I can select the middle of a string. Currently only closing the session and rebooting has reset this option so I can select within a string. I've attached a zip file with two gif file showing what is happening.

    Thank you

    I've seen this behavior in both A2k and AXP. It seems to have come in with the VB IDE, and I've never found an explanation or a remedy except closing the database and reopening it.

    Thank you Charlotte. This happens to me quite frequently and I find that I need to reboot and not just re-open Access.

    Have a nice day.
