GoToRecord after Requery

Hi Experts,

I've got a form that with a subdatasheet that gets requeried on the close event of a form that gets opened from the subdatasheet. As you know, the requery caused the current record to go back to record 1. To keep the current record the same as the current record before the requery, I've tried to record the record number and use GoToRecord to return.

I'm getting the error: "The object 'Forms![frmFilteredUnitSchedule].[subUnitSchedule]' isn't open." Does anyone have any ideas about how I can restore the current record?

Code:
Private Sub Form_Close()

    Dim lngRecordNumber As Long
    Dim strForm As String
   
    intRecordNumber = Forms![frmFilteredUnitSchedule].[subUnitSchedule].[Form].CurrentRecord
    strForm = "Forms![frmFilteredUnitSchedule].[frmUnitSchedule]"
   
    Forms![frmFilteredUnitSchedule].[subUnitSchedule].[Form].Requery

    DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, strForm, acGoTo, intRecordNumber
   
End Sub

Hi Troy,

What is the code that you are using to open the form that gets opened from the subdatasheet?

Does this form add records that the calling form needs to include in it's recordset?

I open the form with:

    Dim strForm As String
    Dim strWhereCondition As String
   
    strForm = "subPurchaserDetail"
    strWhereCondition = "[Client ID]=[Forms]![frmFilteredUnitSchedule]![subUnitSchedule].[Form]![txtClientID]"
   
    DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acNormal, , strWhereCondition, acFormPropertySettings, acWindowNormal

It's not possible to add records, but data in the existing records gets changed which reflects data in the subdatasheet and hence the requirement for the requery on the subdatasheet.

Hi Troy,

If you open the form dialog mode the code that you use to open the form will wait until you have finished editing the record before executing the next line.

Dim strForm As String
    Dim strWhereCondition As String
   
    strForm = "subPurchaserDetail"
    strWhereCondition = "[Client ID]=[Forms]![frmFilteredUnitSchedule]![subUnitSchedule].[Form]![txtClientID]"
   
' Code waits for this to close
DoCmd.OpenForm( strForm, acNormal, , strWhereCondition, acFormPropertySettings, acDialog

'
Dim lngRecordNumber As Long
lngRecordNumber = Me.CurrentRecord
Me.requery    'or me.Refresh
DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, strForm, acGoTo, lngRecordNumber


Alan

p.s. You seem to be dimensioning lngRecordNumber as a long integer but referring to it as intRecordNumber

Option Explicit at the top of your Form Code module will fix this.
But it may also raise other compile problems.

Thanks Alan,

A bit closer. I still get the error, "Object: 'subUnitSchedule' is not open."

I'm using this code to open of frmPurchaserDetail:

    Dim strForm As String
    Dim strWhereCondition As String
    Dim lngRecordNumber As Long
   
    strForm = "subPurchaserDetail"
    strWhereCondition = "[Client ID]=[Forms]![frmFilteredUnitSchedule]![subUnitSchedule].[Form]![txtClientID]"
    lngRecordNumber = Me.CurrentRecord
   
    ' Code waits for this to close
    DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acNormal, , strWhereCondition, acFormPropertySettings, acDialog

    ' After the opened form closes, this code executes
    Me.Refresh
    DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "subUnitSchedule", acGoTo, lngRecordNumber

I've tried using the fully qualified form name ([Forms]![frmFilteredUnitSchedule]![subUnitSchedule]) and the basic form name (subUnitSchedule) and neither seem to work.

strWhereCondition = "[Client ID]=" & Form_frmFilteredUnitSchedule!subUnitSchedule.Form.txtClientID

Hi Alan,

Sorry, it's not the OpenForm command that is failing, it is the GoToRecord command that is failing.

DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "subUnitSchedule", acGoTo, lngRecordNumber

It doesn't like "subUnitShedule" which is a subform of "frmFilteredUnitSchedule".

Hi Troy,

Have you investigated the use of bookmarks, for record navigation?


In a form, I want to  bookmark a record, requery the form, then return to the bookmarked record.

Got it to work. I used bookmarks as per Alan's suggestion in:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_10334897.html

Here's my code:

    Dim strForm As String
    Dim strWhereCondition As String
    Dim lngRecordNumber As Long
   
    strForm = "subPurchaserDetail"
    strWhereCondition = "[Client ID]=" & Form_frmFilteredUnitSchedule!subUnitSchedule.Form.txtClientID
    lngRecordNumber = Me.CurrentRecord
   
    ' Code waits for this to close
    DoCmd.OpenForm strForm, acNormal, , strWhereCondition, acFormPropertySettings, acDialog

    ' After the opened form closes, this code executes
    Dim f As Form
    Dim lngSaveID As Long
   
    Set f = [Forms]![frmFilteredUnitSchedule]![subUnitSchedule].[Form]
    lngSaveID = f![Property ID]  ' My keyID
    f.Refresh
   
    Dim r As Recordset
    Set r = f.RecordsetClone
   
    r.FindFirst "[Property ID] =" & lngSaveID
    f.Bookmark = r.Bookmark
