PRA: Use Shift+F4 Not Edit Find Next to Refresh Display
Article ID: Q104915
Creation Date: 03-OCT-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1
- Microsoft Access Distribution Kit version 1.1
You cannot see the text that was found when you chose either the Find Next or Replace Next command.
The control that holds the text is not large enough to display all the found text. The prior found text is scrolled out of view by Microsoft Access without scrolling the next found text into view.
Instead of choosing the Find Next or Replace Next command, close the dialog box and use the SHIFT+F4 key combination to find the next occurrence of the text.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 2.0.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
- Create a new form.
- Create a new, unbound text box with the default width and height on the form.
Set the ControlSource property of the text box to:
="This is a test. This is a test. This is a test."
- From the View menu, choose Form.
- From the Edit menu, choose Find.
- Type "test" (without the quotation marks) in the Find What box.
- Select Any Part Of Field in the Where box.
- Choose Find Next. Note that the first instance of the text "test" is correctly found and selected.
- Choose Find Next. The next occurrence is found, but you cannot see it because it is scrolled out of view.
