Default Touch screen

Hi guru's

Is it possible to work with a touch screen with access apps?
I completly don't have any experience with this type of screens, does anyone have some docs (url) were to find the info I need ?

Thx

A touch screen is just a pointing device that augments or replaces a mouse. So if the app will work with a mouse (and they all do) then it will work with a touch screen. This is a hardware question, not an Access question.
I have installed, configured and used many touch screens (monitors and overlays.)

BTW, if you want to make an Access app for an environment that only has a touch screen (kiosk) then you can do that too. It is pretty common.

It will be up to you to design the proper interface that can use only buttons and not keystrokes (data input). That is the fun part. Prepare to make many forms.
