> Hi Gang,

I have [had? ;-)] the understanding that, you need to press the ALT key in order to activate them [Alt-N, Alt-P, etc]. Testing recently shows that I can press N, P, etc to carry out those function [if focus is NOT in a text box or a grid]. If focus is set to the Add button, I can press the N and my form will display the next record in the table.

Al,

That's pretty standard Windows behaviour. It allows a user to navigate through menu choices without having to use the mouse - something that can really interfere with users doing heads down data entry. Why don't you want it to behave that way?

Regards,
Jim
