Recently been upgraded to Access 2016.
Having fun now. pullhair.gif
Anyhow, most of it is the same as 2007, however, I've been looking for the icon for the text box where you can select the lines that you want to appear on said box.
Did Access remove that nifty little shortcut?
Is it somewhere else?

Not sure what control you are referring to. Any chance you could post an image of the 2007 control or give us the exact name?

My error...the feature is in Word.

It's a formatting function that lets you select lines on a text box.

I've moved this discussion to the Word forum since you're talking about Word text boxes, which are very different from Access textboxes.

Just to clarify; in Word 2010, if you have a text box object in a Word file, you can click once on the text box, then right-click on the text box's border to see a context menu. From there you can select "Format Shape" and then select the text box's line color, line thickness and line style. Is that what you're referring to?

Changing your real table name to "Table1" and your real form name to "Form1" in your posts makes it more difficult to understand what's going on, not easier.
