Figured out the problem... You have to go to the datasources window (alt
shift d). Arrow down to the column you want to change the control for and
route jaws to pc. right arrow until you hear "blank" 3 times after the end
of the column name and then do left mouse button....

there may be a "pain in the rear" method for doing what is needed, I
remember when I took my access class at the college, there was one item in
the forms window, a grey square, that had to be clicked to invoke certain
functions, and the jaws I had then didn't have any alternative to do this.  
 
what I did was I got a sighted person to sit with me looking at the monitor,
and I moved my jaws cursor down the screen so it was in line with the thing,
found something around that area that the jaws cursor could "see" a graphic
on the screen, then hand arrowed the cursor one point over until my
assistant said it was in the square and I could left click it with the
number pad mouse key.  
 
though slow and a pain, you might be able to get to your "arrow" this way
 
if you know anything about jaws scripting, and/or can find out how to get
the positional information of the jaws cursor, someone may be able to add it
to scripts with a hot key combo  so it is useable.

Hi, I think this is a bug in the MSAA implementation of the IDE, as no
screen reader can get to it either, never mind the user. The only way you
can possibly do this is to copy the controls to the clipboard, ensuring that
a form is open, and paste the contents, however it'll be in some table
layout form. I asked this very question a few months back, so that's how I
was told about this "bug". Hope that helps.

Does anybody know how to do this in datasources window? The tutorials always
say to click the arrow next to the column name and choose detail, but I cant
even get that far... any ideas?
