    Field Name of a control

    I have a form bound to a query. Each field in this control is bound to a field in the query. I use the Screen.ActiveControl command to retrieve the control which has the focus, as shown below. How can I retrieve the (query) field name associated with the control which has the focus?





    dim ctr as control
    set ctr =
    Screen.ActiveControl 'now that I know the control with the focus, what is the field name associated with this control?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply but your statement retrieves the control name, not the underlying field name in the query bound to my form. They are different in my design.
