    Touch Screens and Access Database.

    I have had a database program with a client for over a year. Recently one of the clients employees started using a touch screen laptop to use the database during meetings.
    While the database works normally with a mouse it does not scroll well when using the touch screen, and often freezes up portions of the main data entry form.


    Has anyone run into this problems with Access?

    Thank you.

    No problems to speak of, except for fingers bigger than the control, such as the X/close. One would have to make command buttons for the smaller controls to accommodate finger sizes, or grow one's nails! But no problems with scrolling or freezing. They might be confusing Access by doing things that they wouldn't do if using a mouse, like moving too quickly between functions. Tell them to bring their mouse to meetings!

    aytee111,

    Thanks for the quick response, using the mouse seemed most logical.

    Thanks again,
