Right off hand, you're probably seeing this because you don't have an exception if the findfirst doesn't work...you should probably add a line below your rs.FindFirst statement, or probably after the end select, experiment with the location; it should go something like:

if not(rs.NoMatch) then
    if not rs.eof then
    ....
    end if
end if

you could actually speed up the execution of the code by including a with statement, that would replace every instance of your rs.***?? so the above code would look something like

with rs
    if not (.nomatch) then
        if not (.eof) then
...
end with

My rs.FindFirst is always working in my case. I tried adding the code you suggested -- all of it and pieces of it -- and it fails every where I put it. As soon as it reaches the rs.MovePrevious (or rs.MoveNext for that matter), it errors out.  Any other suggestions?

I just tried it again.  You're right, my FindFirst is never being found.  This is happening, I am assuming since I am entering in a "new" PendIn date and the PendingId is just being generated, but has not yet been saved.  Once I create a record, then edit the PendIn date, my code works fine.  Do you have any suggestions as to how I could still get the current record (unsaved record) to work as the FINDFIRST and then move back to check the previous record? thanks.

well, I'm kind of confused about what you're after, but if you add a new record, then the previous one would simply be at:
  rs.movelast

something I just saw when re-reading your question is a confusion about the bookmark....I don't know if this aspect covers the whole scope of it's use, but sometimes I'll create a recordsetclone of a form, and want it to contain the whole table, but reside at the same record that the form is currently on, then I'll add the line
rs.bookmark = me.bookmark
which simply says, I want my recordset location (bookmark) to equal the forms recordset

let me know if I didn't completely understand your question about the FINDFIRST and previous record, if I didn't please clearify and I will try to provide a better answer

I am probably just confusing you since I'm doing so many different things.  You are helping me immensely.  I figured out that the previous record was at rs.movelast and using that to find my value worked great.  Now my question is this:  when I am entering in a Pending Out date and want to look at the next record and there isn't a next record (since I'm entering a value in the new record), the value of the next record is "empty".  If I say something like: If IsEmpty(vnextvalue) then... even though the value of vNextValue is empty, it doesn't find it.  Can you help me here?  Thanks.

I've never used or seen IsEmpty referenced before I've always used IsNull(vNextValue) ? questoin: is vNextValue supposed to be the value passed by the NexRecVal() function?

sometimes a variable can be "empty" but not actually be empty, there's a value called "zero length string" which is simply blank (no not a space, like this "") however, the variant object can be null where most other variable types cannot handle nulls, they have to be "", sounds confusing because it is...if you use a null in the wrong variable type you get an error "invalid use of null"

beyond this I'm unclear on what you're asking?
