Access Input Masks


Kyle Walker

Simple Question: For the MS Access 2002 edition.
Have they fixed the problem with input masks not printing
for labels (Except Social Security Numbers)?

InputMask got nothing to do with Report printing! It is up to you to
control the FORMAT of the output on the (Label) Report.

Using the second section of the InputMask, you can ask Access to save the
masking characters as part of the Field values and these characters will be
printed on the Report. If you don't save the masking characters with the
Field values, you can simply use Format Property or Format() function to
specify the output format.
