    My colleague has created a form for data entry of our clients, and the form
    looks good and will let us check boxes, but will not let us into the form
    fields. The text boxes where we would enter information (ie. name, ssn,
    employer, etc.) will not let us even select the box to put in text. I have
    made sure that additions, deletions, editing and data entry are allowed. What
    else can I do?

    is your recordsource based on a query?

    are you an idiot that uses MDB or are you using a real-mans database
    like SQL Server and Access Data Projects??

    Sorry, but SQL's a wimp. If it ain't on a mainframe, it ain't a database.
