    can find the undo command in access 2007. Suggestions on where to look or is
    this a glitch. If there it is not intuitive to me.

    I don't have the beta on this machine, but in code, it would be:

    Me.Undo

    on the keyboard, press the Escape key twice.

    Hi.

    > can find the undo command in access 2007.


    It's not there. You need to add this button to your Quick Access Toolbar.
    Select the Office button in the top left corner of the screen, then select
    the "Access Options" button on the bottom right of the pop-up window to open
    the Access Options dialog window.

    Select the "Customization" navigation menu item, then select the "Choose
    commands from" combo box and select from the menus or sections that contain
    the functions you want. For the life of me, I can't find which menu the
    undo button was in when I added it to my toolbar. Perhaps it'll show up in
    your "All commands" (at the very bottom of the combo box list) when you look
    for it because you haven't yet moved it to the toolbar.

    Hitting <CTRL><Z> undoes the last command, too. Access 2003 had 100 levels
    of undo, so perhaps Access 2007 has as many, too.

    Access 2007 was designed for ease of use for beginning and intermediate
    Excel users, because they struggled with the old format of the previous
    versions of Access in Microsoft's usability study. I guess those users
    never made any mistakes, so an undo button never came up on their list of
    "gotta haves." Maybe we should have sent some Access users to Microsoft's
    "Access interface" usability study. ;-)

    HTH.

    Ctrl-Z on the keyboard works.

    with the default settings, there is also an icon on the QAT.

    Interesting, but I would not know where to look.

    However, a older lady at a church (where they run my membership software)
    uses word and ms-access all the time. To undo, or cut, or paste, she users
    the tool bar.

    If you look at a2007, from the upper left we have

    "office button", "save button", "print button", and then that "half circle
    arrow" which has been the un-do icon for many many years.

    That old lady uses that icon to un-do her work. It is available in most
    office programs if you have any tools bars showing even from BEFORE office
    97 it has been there. So, at least 10+ years that old lady has used that
    feature.

    So, use that icon/button.........

    If you are asking is the "file, edit, " gone...yes....
