Hi,

Using Access 2007.

In a subform when right-clicking on a record (or more specifically a field in a record) there is a delete button. However, it only deletes the value in the field. Can we get Access to delete the entire record this way? Showing the records selectors in the subform doesn't seem change anything.

I know that there is a "Delete Record" in the ribbon menu. I assume I could get a QAT button going also. I would like the user to be able to both right click to delete, as well as use menu items in the Ribbon (i.e., their choice).

At present I have written code to use a double click event to allow deletes in the subform as an alternative.

Regards,
ξ
