Keyboard Settings

P: 64
Did I accidently set a soft switch in the setup of my program. I have been using access for a long time.

yesterday...while writing code, the cursor started jumping around weirdly.

example..

As I typed str="
it comes out looking like str = "" and the curor is setting directly after the "=" sign.


I have checked the setup options and can't seem to find a setting that changes anything. Oh, and one other thing.

When I try to define a control by typing "set ctl="
..the word set flashes red, and the cursor moves back to the end of the word "set" even after hitting the space bar. If I hit the space bar, the cursor moves forward, the word "set" flashes red and the cursor reverts back to the end of the word "set"


I can't be my keyboard becuase it is working fine as I type this message.


Help me!!!!!! Driving my crazy

Thanks

One other thing...just to make it interesting, it doesn't do it on all forms.

Tom,

This truly and odd issue. From what you're explaining it seems to be a hardware issue, yet it doesn't do it all the time or in forums. Couple questions come to mind though:

1. Are you using a wireless kb or typing on a laptop with a touch pad?

2. Is your coding environment the standard VBA that comes with Access or are you using an exterior coder?

Honestly though if it's not hardware I can't seem to figure out why the odd behavior.

I am using standard access coding from within the program. I don't know what dhanged and it doesn't occur in all of the forms..... I don't seem to have any issues in any other software.

You havent got any routines in there that are on a timer do you? This behaviour can occur if you have a form open whether that be hidden or whatver, where a timer is operating lets say every second or so (maybe a clock on a form or detecting idle time event or something like that) and if you are in the VB editor it can cause this problem

As a matter of fact, I do have a timer on some of the forms, a clock if you will. I guess I should deactivate until I am finished.

Thanks
