I have a form which is to be completed by our shop floor, on touch screens. Can anyone tell me how I can open up the on-screen keyboard, when the form opens.

HI;
You could use the Call Shell method ...
Call Shell("osk.exe")
HTH.

Thanks Jay that's great. Forgot to mention, I want it to close when the form closes too.

You could also use an internal approach as shown here.

Good luck

Thanks HTH, but my knowledge of code is not good enough to transfer the text to the fields in my form.

I'm not sure what you mean. The sample should be pretty straight forward.
BTW (by the way)...my name is not HTH sad.gif...it means Hope This/That Helps.

Good luck

Sorry freakazeud, first day back after 'short' holiday, didn't read the 'posted by'. I've got 17 fields on my form which need to be filled in. There seems to be a lot of code here to fill one unbound control.
