    Does this persist after quitting and restarting Access, or restarting Windows? Copying and pasting properties works without problems for me in Access 2002 SP-3.

    If I close the form and re-open it I can get one copy, but then no more. Closing and re-starting Windows or Access makes no diff.

    This is certainly not normal behavior. Do you have any utilities/add-ins running that mess with the clipboard?

    Sorry, no idea. The problems seem unconnected, but who knows...

    There seems to be a bug in Access 2002 that causes the database window to lock. I know that my associates and I all see it at work. What we see is that you can select an item visible in the database window but you can't scroll in that group. Selecting a different category, such as reports, and then coming back to the category you need, like forms, unfreezes the scrolling. I've never run into the other problem you describe, but I generally don't do a bunch of pasting in property windows.
