    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.
