Tablet pc form

P: n/a
I'm testing out writing a form using the InkEdit control to update
fields in several tables. From what I can see, you cannot directly
update data in a bound field, but I assume you can run an update query
to get the same result. My problem is, being an unbound field then,
how can I determine whether or not the user has updated any of the Ink
controls? Any help would by appreciated, thank you in advance.

I ran the update query on the InkEdit controls and it worked fine, so
now I just need help figuring out how I can tell if the user has
written anything into any of the controls. Or, if anyone has any
suggestions on another way to go about the form. Hopefully I am not
making this harder than it has to be. Thanks!

Check the Dirty property of the control

If me.Fields(intNumber).Dirty=True Then
'do something
End If

pietlinden, thanks for the response, but because the InkEdit control
will not work when it is bound to a table, it's status is never dirty.
The only thing I can think of is to check the len() of each field
before and after. Doing so is too much coding and not even 100%
accurate.
