INF: Aligning User-Defined Formats in Text Fields

Article ID: Q106293
Creation Date: 04-NOV-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1

SUMMARY


The Format Property topic in the Microsoft Access Help system states the following:

   NOTE When you create a user-defined format, the alignment defaults
   to right-aligned. Use an exclamation point to force left alignment.

This information is not true for fields with a text data type. Fields with a text data type will be left-aligned. MORE INFORMATION


Steps to Reproduce Behavior


  1. Open the sample database NWIND.MDB.
  2. Open the Suppliers table in Design view.
  3. Select the Region field, and then enter the following user-defined format in the field's Format property:

          @;none
  4. View the table in Datasheet view.

Note that the field is left-aligned. To right-align the field, use the following sample user-defined format:

   /@;none
