    Hi all,

    We have a tabbed form working beautifully with macros which use the sendkeys
    function, but for some reason it just doesn't work on the laptop. I've tried
    restoring default settings, mucked about in options, and I've even just
    updated it to Access 2003, but to no avail.

    Does anyone know why sendkeys doesn't work on the laptop and if I can do
    anything about it?

    Cheers.

    Most programmers do not like to use SendKeys because of unexpected results.
    Say for instance you've programmed the SendKeys response to click the {Enter}
    Key. You have Outlook open and an email pops up with the focuse set to a URL
    in the email. Now suppose that URL is going to a porn site, and your boss is
    standing right behind you. Remember that raise you were about to get?

    The above scenario is really not that extreme. It can easily happen. Most
    SendKeys statements and macros will have a coded equivalent. Why don't you
    post the macro and we'll try to write some code which both solves your
    problem and avoids the drawbacks of SendKeys.
