    Hi,

    When you select a memofield on a form; a scrollbar on the rightside appears.
    But as soon as you leave that field the bar also vanishes.

    Is it possible to arrange that field so that the scrollbar is ALWAYS visible.

    The problem is that users cant see if any text is following after the
    visible text if the memo is not selected.

    Ofer, I don't think this will result in a scrollbar even when the text box
    does not have focus.

    AFAIK, the Access text box does not do that.

    Thanks Allen
    I tried it before I posted my response, but I forgot to move the focus from
    the field.

    Good to know that someone is watching over you.

    Thanks.

    A textbox i can't use because the limited input.

    But i found something else, not what i want but useable.
    I can count the number of lines in the memo and i know how much lines can be
    visible at once.
    So if the lines are more then the visible ones i put a label on my form to
    attend the user on it.
