How can I make a specific record the current record displayed on my edit form? I want to be able to type in a criteria in text box and move to the first record found matching the criteria. I have tried this using the findfirst method to no avail. I created the form with the wizard.

Try using the recordsetclone. e.g.


Me.RecordsetClone.FindFirst "[lngYourID] = " & Me![txtYourTextbox]
Me.Bookmark = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark

In the afterupdate event of the textbox or behind a command button.

if you used the wizard to create the form, chances are you'd have to use this syntax:

DoCmd.FindRecord [criteria]

For instance, if you were typing in a LastName text box and then clicked a button to find, you'd do this:

LastName.setfocus
DoCmd.FindRecord "LastName = '" & LastName & "'"

This pulls the value from the text box and searches for it.
