Open RecordSet at Specific Record

VB Gurus,
I created a master/detail datagrid, using the dataform wizard. I want the recordset to open up at a specific record based upon the master's primary key "c_num", this value is generated and passed using a global variable("client_num") from frm_Client_Info to the Master/Detail Form, frm_All_Client_Info. Line 01 was generated by the wizard, the rest is my unsuccessful attempt to move to the specific record automatically with the form load. The code does not generate any errors it just does not work.

Private Sub Form_Load()
(01)  Set grdDataGrid.DataSource = datPrimaryRS.Recordset("ChildCMD").UnderlyingValue

    Set db1 = OpenDatabase("C:\Database\Bacon.mdb")
    Set link = db1.OpenRecordset("Clients")

    Do Until link!c_num = client_num


End Sub
Thank you.

Use SQL:

dim strSQL as string

strSQL = "select * from Clients where c_num >= " & cstr(client_num) & " order by c_num"

Set link = db1.OpenRecordSet(strSql)

I was praying that would work, but it did not. I think the code generated by the data wizard is circumventing any I add in. I welcome any more assistance and thank you for your help.

Here is the code that was generated by the data wizard to open the current record.
Private Sub datPrimaryRS_MoveComplete(ByVal adReason As ADODB.EventReasonEnum, ByVal pError As ADODB.Error, adStatus As ADODB.EventStatusEnum, ByVal pRecordset As ADODB.Recordset)
  'This will display the current record position for this recordset
  datPrimaryRS.Caption = "Record: " & CStr(datPrimaryRS.Recordset.AbsolutePosition)
End Sub

Yes, sorry... I never ever use data bound controls and I took it from that premise. I don't know how to solve the problem for those controls except to suggest you get rid of them and use normal controls. But I'm sure that's the last thing you want to hear right now...

caraf or any helpful programmer,
Please take a look at this:
This sql statement comes from a vb generated adodc component:

SHAPE {select BBINumber,First,Last from BBI} AS ParentCMD APPEND ({select Date_Interaction,InteractionAuthor,Note,Status from ClientInteraction Order by Date_Interaction } AS ChildCMD RELATE BBINumber TO BBINumber_Client) AS ChildCMD

I need to add this condition into the above SQL statement

WHERE BBINumber >= " & CStr(client_bbi_num) & "

For syncronize Grid Detail to Master I use Event Reposition of Master Data, that fires when Master changes.  

In that Event, you can command the Detail Grid for changing with Master primary key if also the Details has it.

DataDetail.RecordSource = "SELECT .... FROM ... WHERE NameofDetailCampForClient_Num = " &  Client_Num
