Navigation Buttons - Display text alongside

P: n/a
Afternoon

Is it possible to display test alongside the Navigation Buttons in an
MS Access form?

I have a complex form containing a number of subforms where the
Navigation Buttons are relatively adjacent.

Users are getting confused as to which Navigation Button they are
selecting, so adjacent text would help.

Many thanks

You might consider removing the built-in nav buttons and replacing them with
your own buttons. Then you could label them as you want.

Yes. You can create your own navigation buttons.

Partial code you can use, for the area of entering the record number,
can be found at http://www.mvps.org/access/forms/frm0026.htm.

Maybe some info in
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....4bcb0db0b00dfb
will help as well.

In Google Groups (advanced search) look for "Navigation Button code" in
groups "*Access*".

Gary, Access 2007 can do this, but previous versions cannot.

In the current version, you just set the Navigation Caption property for the
form.
