Trailing characters in form fields


J

Jerome Nocerino

I am using Access to prefill Word forms using form field bookmarks. That all works fine except that there are trailing blank spaces at the end of every field. I wouldn't mind except that in some case they cause a return that alters the alignment of the data.

Is there any way to trim these trailing spaces with my Access VBA code while the form is being populated?

Thanks.

If you are using a query to "feed" your Word forms, you can use the Trim()
function to remove leading and trailing spaces.

Trim doesn't work. Apparently my bookmark data is being inserted before the placeholder spaces thae Word uses for blank form fields. The code I'm using from Access is:

.Selection.Text = Trim(me.txtJobNumber)

Thanks for your input

"doesn't work" covers a lot of possibilities...

Since your textbox control was created by you, have you first tried using

Me!txtJobNumber

rather than the "dot" version (".")?

The folks here might be able to come up with some other ideas if you'd post
a bit more context for the code you're using...

Good luck!
