I think the only way is to use a Macro.
Using the "When receiving focus" event of the text box to run a Macro that sets the Text property of the text box to empty "".

Sub Tclear(oEvent)
Tbox = oEvent.Source
Tbox.Text = ""
End Sub

You can use this Macro for any text box on any form as it uses the event argument oEvent to identify the text box.
