Hi, I've got an odd problem in Forms 6.0

In a Form text field (non-database item), we're trying
to restrict typing in the field (i.e. numbers 0-9,letters A-Z). We only want to allow the user to paste the contents of the Windows clipboard in this field (i.e. we'd have to allow CTRL-V or SHIFT-INSERT).

This is very baffling, and I'm not sure if it really can be done.

If anyone has any tips, it would be much appreciated.

Create one pop-up menu in ur form.Create one item and set these following properties.Menu Item Type-Magic and
Magic Item - Paste. Then go to item's property for which u want to allow paste only and set its Popup Menu property to the menu which u created.
