Default Drag and drop

Is it possible to build drag and drop facilities into Access?

For example, if I have a form with a datasheet subform and a listbox, is there any way to drag and drop names from the listbox into "cells" on the datasheet?

Hi Clive,

One thing to check out is Peter DeBaets Drag-N-Dropper program at:

http://www.peterssoftware.com

It's good stuff. Allows "text to be moved or copied (using 'CTRL-Drag') between text-based MS Access controls (including single select list boxes) by clicking on the desired text, dragging to the new control, and releasing he mouse button."

Demo available to play with.

I've never tried writing code to do what you need but hear it's a nightmare.

Regards,

Bob
