I don't even know how to describe this. I've been devolping in access for many years. when i use my lap top without a mouse attached (ie, using the sensor pad), i can make a combination of moves with the sensor pad and left/right click and the database window disappears!!! hitting f11 does not work!! nothing appears. i can reimport every object into a new db, but this rework gets really old because i do this about once a week. this only happens using my laptop, without a mouse. anyone ever seen this? i saw one other post, but the one response was not helpful.
