Select All on Click

Post by Leesha »

Hi,
Is there a way to right click on a text box and have the option come up to select all?
Thanks,
Leesha

Do you really need this? Microsoft has made customizing context menus more difficult in Access 2007 and later.
You can set Access to select the entire contents when you tab into a control:

You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Double click works just as well?
Using Access 2007.
