I am updateing an Access 97 table.  I have a Primary Key set up on a multiple field index.  To reference the Index from VB My statement is:
rsInvhd.Index = "Rp0753sIndex"
I get no errors but my seek (rsInvhd.Seek "=", strSeek) does not work.  I've checked field and search string lengths.  What's the secret?

For multiple keys you need to do

rsInvhd.Seek "=", strkey1,strkey2,strkey3


If your seaching over a single key, could you set up a single key index?
Experimentation shows that you do need the full key.  Supply the full key data or define a new index with a single key.

strSeek is built from multiple fields

It worked by separating the elements rather than having them in 1 variable.
