GoToRecord command

I am jumping from one form to another using:

    DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "ViewInvoices", acGoTo, 2

but instead of going to record number 2 I want to go to the same record that I am already in. acNext  - ok,  acPrevious - ok ... but I want to go to the very same record.
What is this command?!!!

Cheers.

Please, be less confusing.
If you don't know to go from current record you have no need to use GoToRecord command, or if You want to use try with
DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "ViewInvoices", acGoTo, 0

DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "ViewInvoices", acGoTo, 0
0 is an invalid value.

I was using:

    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "ViewInvoices"
   
    stLinkCriteria = "[InvoiceNo]=" & Me![InvoiceNo]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

But the trouble with this is that it filters the records.

You need to use 'Bookmark' property of the Form record source.

Or:
forms!OtherForm!InvoiceNo.setfocus
DoCmd.FindRecord me!InvoiceNo

The bookmark approach is more elegant (even if it takes more code to do it), but often considered a bit confusing by non-expert programmers

You are both more elegant than me, and Trygve takes the points.
