    Selecting text (weird behavior) (2003)

    I'm seeing some strange behavior when I try to select text in a form or table field. I can't select part of the field

    My copy of Access 2003 does this sometimes. I just close it down relaunch and it goes away. No idea what causes it.

    Yeah, that's the other thing: It's inconsistent! Thanks for the response. It's good to know I'm not the only guy to notice this.

    Same thing happens with my copy, but all I need to do is hit <Esc> a couple of times and it reverts back to selecting correctly.

    I don't think I have ever tried that. Next time it happens I will give it a go.
