I'm entering data in my table via datasheet view. In some text fields, I want (for instance) three or four spaces, nothing else. Spaces are important to me. However, as soon as I hit enter or tab or an arrow key, Access changes my spaces to an empty cell. How do I combat this? Also, how would I enter a tab? I know ctrl+enter puts a carriage return in a text field, but ctrl (or shift) + tab (or space) do not do the trick for me. Thanks for any help!
