Move Up Down Using Keyboard
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   6 months ago

Use the Keyboard to Move Up and Down Between Records


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video I'll show you how you can use keyboard shortcuts to navigate up and down through records in your Microsoft Access databases.

Juan from Yokosuka Navy Base, Japan (a Gold Member) asks: I would like to be able to move up and down in my continuous forms just like an Excel spreadsheet using the keys. Is this possible in Access? Right now the up and down arrows just move between fields.

I'll show you how to use the KeyPreview form property to intercept special keys, like the arrow keys. We'll learn about the KeyPress and KeyDown events and the special KeyCode constants. We'll make your form truly behave like an Excel spreadsheet where users can move up, down, left, and right with the arrow keys.

Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!
