    The 'Descriptions' field shown in the Details view in Access should be
    editable by double-clicking on the description. Currently, one must open the
    properties window to make changes to the description. Descriptions are very
    useful in documenting queries, tables, macros, modules, etc and a
    click-to-edit feature would be a great addition.

    The normal way to permanently change any Property is to open the Property
    Sheet, in Design View; or to modify the Property value from VBA code. I
    agree that the Description property is very useful documentation.

    A Description Field would be defined in a Table, its value would be
    modifiable, and would apply to the individual Record. But, I think you were
    talking about the Description property.

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!
