Saving New Records

Posted on 2000-02-29

I am working on a project, and the following code is supposed to save a new record. Instead it deletes and replaces the first record then adds a new record to EOF. Please help as my job is on the line(no joke), and as a newcomer this problem is driving me bonkers.

Code Begins:

Private Sub cmd_Save_Click()
Dim rs As Recordset
Set rs = Data1.Recordset

Data1.ReadOnly = False

strTypeOfInquiry = cmboTypeOfInquiry.Text
strStatus2 = cmboStatus.Text
T_TimeInteracting = Input_TimeSpentInteraction.Text
Dte_DateEntered = txt_DateEntered.Text
Dte_DateInteraction = txt_DateInteraction.Text
strNotes = txtNotes.Text
strAuthor = cmbo_Author.Text
num_ClientInteractions  = rs.RecordCount


With Data1.Recordset

            !Number_Client = strBBINumber
            If num_ClientInteractions  > 0 Then
                  !Client_Interactions = num_ClientInteractions + 1
                  !Client_Interactions = 1
            End IF
            !TypeOfInquiry = strTypeOfInquiry
            !Status = strStatus2
            !Date_Interaction = Dte_DateInteraction
            !DateEntered = Dte_DateEntered
            !Note = strNotes
            !InteractionAuthor = strAuthor
            !TimeSpentOnInteraction = T_TimeInteracting

            ClientInteraction.cmdSaveAndExit.Enabled = False

        End With

    End If

End Sub

CODE ENDS. Please help. Thank you.

The code I've always used for adding a record is as follows:

Data1.Recordset.Fields("fieldName") = SomeText.Text
Data1.Recordset.Fields("field2Name") = MoreText.Text
