Total Access Components 2010 includes two sets of ActiveX controls for 32 and 64-bit Access 2010-2016 versions. The 32-bit version is backward compatible with MS Access 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2007. Both 32 and 64 bit versions are compatible so an Access database using one set of controls can be used by the other without modification (assuming the appropriate version of Total Access Components is installed on the machine).
Check the Product Compatibility Chart for version information for all of our products.

Yes. Resize fonts on forms by setting the ResizeFonts property to True. Refer to the Resize and Resize Fonts Property sections of the user manual or help file for details.
No. The custom controls of Total Access Components work when placed on forms running in standard Form view. Due to limitations in Microsoft Access, custom controls don't work if a form is in other views like Datasheet, Continuous or Split Forms.
The events of the controls are not available via the Access form/report property sheet (where you might expect them to be). They are, however, accessible in code. The example below is for the OnSelect event of the Icon Menu control:
As you can see, the code stub is then created for you like below.
Once the code stub is created, you can add your custom code to execute each time the event occurs.
When you use the FMS Tab control, certain keyboard navigation shortcuts are not built in.
If you would like to set the focus to another control when the tab key is pressed, please use the following code. This code is written to be pasted into tab demo 2 in the components demo. Specifically, you will have to update the field named "txtCAStreet" to the name of the control which you want to receive the focus.
Private Sub tabAddress_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer) If (KeyCode=9) And (Shift=0) Then ' Move to next control txtCAStreet.SetFocus End If End Sub
This problem can occur for one of these reasons:
The following may be reasons why this error occurs:
This error occurs when you attempt to run the Update Wizard by double clicking the "Update.exe" directly instead of running it from the Windows Programs Menu shortcut.
This is because the update.exe file requires parameters to run and return the correct information. In order to determine if there is an update available for this product, please run the update wizard program from the Windows Programs menu or Windows Metro menu.
