    Dear friends:

    It seems I cannot type values into text columns in a datasheet without
    Access "correcting" my typing.

    I type a text value "SCo" but it changes it to "Sco". If I type SCO it
    doesn't change it. Another "stupid" feature?

    I turned of the AutoCorrect with which I'm familiar, but that isn't it. So,
    where is this one?

    Thanks for the help.

    There should be a checkbox labelled "Correct TWo INitial CApitals" that you
    need to uncheck.

    Dear Doug:

    So, I click on Tools/Steele/Doug/Custom Options and there it is!

    So, if I want to control what goes into a table, maybe I should create a
    form. It won't do that from a form, right?

    I was so hoping I could build all my applications without having to create
    forms and reports. That's hard work!

    No, unless you turn off Autocorrect, it'll do the same thing in a form.

    That having been said, I believe you should always use a form.

    (It's not obvious from your response, Tom, whether you realized that the
    "Correct TWo INitial CApitals" option I mentioned is on the AutoCorrect
    page)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
