    I am writing a DB to work w/ Card Swipe equipment.

    I have an unbound textbox to check the Length of the entry. When it's 5
    (the code from the card swipe), it runs code to populate Unbound textboxes
    on an Unbound Form.

    But, it's acting erratic...it doesn't always use the "most recent entry".

    Any ideas?

    TIA - Bob

    Try the AfterUpdate event of the text box.
    The Change event is probably too early.
    It fires with every keystroke.
    You want the event that fires after all keystrokes are present.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
