Any easy way to do it without API's in VBA (Outlook 2k3)?
If the form is for use in Outlook, you should post to the
microsoft.public.outlook.program_forms newsgroup. I have cross posted this
response to that newsgroup so someone there may jump in with a response.
Hope this helps,

Not in one step. It would involve scanning it in as OCR, correcting whatever

...Form Dirty Property
I am having difficulty in exploiting the ‘On Dirty’ property of forms.
Sometimes it works as expected but, more often than not, changes to controls
bound to table fields fail to trigger the On Dirty event. I am then forced
to associate each amendable control with an After Update event. That
invariably works but, with a dozen or more amendable controls on a form, the
resulting code can look pretty clumsy. There is something that I have
clearly not understood. Can anyone enlighten me? I just want to take
appropriate action when any control on a form is updated or amended.

Annoying for years, but perhaps the is an alternative I haven't discovered;
When finding records using the Data Form based on Criteria, the recordset is
restricted to only those which match the Criteria. However, if you delete
those found records one at a time (using the Form's delete button), once you
delete the last _matching_ record the next records in the list appear in the
form -- even though they _do not_ match the criteria. I realize it is a
matter of user recognition to notice that, but I can't begin to quantify the

The problems occur when the user has opened multiple appointments in the

to bump into an answer myself, which seems to help me in most cases. A

field in the form or report isn't wide enough to show all 15 decimals, it
just shows #####. What I asked about some months ago was a method to show the
