Form update on Table property change ?

P: n/a
I am working with MS Office Access 2003 11.5614 on a computer running
XP. If I change a property such as the input mask in a table, to have
the change reflected in an existing form I have to go to the form
design, delete the field and re-insert it into the form to exhibit the
change in the property. Is there a command I can use to cause the
forms to refresh their conditions from the table ?

Thank you for your reply,

Stan Hanna

That's by design. Therefore spend enough time on your table design
BEFORE you create your forms.

When you change properties in the 2003 version, you should get a
smart flag you can click (some thingie with a "lightening" on it),
where you are asked whether you want to propagate the changes
everywhere the field is used. Whether it works or not, I wouldn't
know.
