A lot of what you can do in VB6 you can do in VBA. (Not everything, as I understand it, but a lot, and depending on the Access version.)

So I googled it ("vb6 mouse move") and came up with a few things using VB6 that may work.

Thanks Nick, I'll do that now.

Do you know where I should look to see if I have VB6?

Allow me to re-iterate...

Most all the programming that you can do in VB6 you can also do in VBA. VBA is what the Office suite uses. Therefore, if you find a hint/tip/trick/book/site on programming in VB6, a lot of that will translate to VBA as well, from Office 2002-2003 to the present. Since you chose 2016 as the version you're working with, you shouldn't have an issue.

For instance, among the first things that came up when I googled 'vb6 mouse move' was a site named 'VB6 Helper', which contained code for moving the mouse to a location on the screen and 'clicking' the mouse button at that location.

So while not a 'VBA' or Office specific site, the code listing would likely still work. (I didn't try it, because I see no need. At a glance, I didn't see anything out of the realm of possibility for VBA. Use at your own risk.)

Is that enough clarification?

Good luck, and happy coding!
