I have created a simple VB form with 10 fields from the Oracle DB with a wizard and wants to replace the record position number display with a value from the Field on the form .(see below for a code that was generated)
lblStatus.Caption = "Record: " & CStr(adoPrimaryRS.AbsolutePosition)

Not a VB programmer and need some help.
Thanks

Try:

lblStatus.Caption = "Record: " & CStr(adoPrimaryRS) & ""

If that does not work, please post more of your code.

I tried and did not work. Here is some more code: I would like to display value from the hr_location field instead of record position number on the bottom of the form.  Hope this helps.

Set adoPrimaryRS = New Recordset
  adoPrimaryRS.Open "select HR_LOCATION from MASTER_LIST", db, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

Private Sub adoPrimaryRS_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
   lblStatus.Caption = "Record: " & CStr(adoPrimaryRS.AbsolutePosition)

Is your label bound to the recordset? Do you see any code that looks like this:

Set lblStatus.Datasource = adoPrimaryRS
lblStatus.DataField = "HR_LOCATION"

Only place I see with Datasource is :

 'Bind the text boxes to the data provider
  For Each oText In Me.txtFields
    Set oText.DataSource = adoPrimaryRS

Do not see anywhere where it's referencing field name(hr_location).

Here is the full code VB wizard generated:

Dim WithEvents adoPrimaryRS As Recordset
Dim mbChangedByCode As Boolean
Dim mvBookMark As Variant
Dim mbEditFlag As Boolean
Dim mbAddNewFlag As Boolean
Dim mbDataChanged As Boolean

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim db As Connection
  Set db = New Connection
  db.CursorLocation = adUseClient
  db.Open "PROVIDER=MSDASQL;dsn=test1;uid=userid;pwd=userpass;database=test1;"

  Set adoPrimaryRS = New Recordset
  adoPrimaryRS.Open "select HR_LOCATION from MASTER_LIST", db, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

  Dim oText As TextBox
  'Bind the text boxes to the data provider
  For Each oText In Me.txtFields
    Set oText.DataSource = adoPrimaryRS
  Next

  mbDataChanged = False
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Resize()
  On Error Resume Next
  lblStatus.Width = Me.Width - 1500
  cmdNext.Left = lblStatus.Width + 700
  cmdLast.Left = cmdNext.Left + 340
End Sub

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
  If mbEditFlag Or mbAddNewFlag Then Exit Sub

  Select Case KeyCode
    Case vbKeyEscape
      cmdClose_Click
    Case vbKeyEnd
      cmdLast_Click
    Case vbKeyHome
      cmdFirst_Click
    Case vbKeyUp, vbKeyPageUp
      If Shift = vbCtrlMask Then
        cmdFirst_Click
      Else
        cmdPrevious_Click
      End If
    Case vbKeyDown, vbKeyPageDown
      If Shift = vbCtrlMask Then
        cmdLast_Click
      Else
        cmdNext_Click
      End If
  End Select
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
  Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault

       End Sub

Private Sub adoPrimaryRS_WillChangeRecord(ByVal adReason As ADODB.EventReasonEnum, ByVal cRecords As Long, adStatus As ADODB.EventStatusEnum, ByVal pRecordset As ADODB.Recordset)

Change the Form Load to this

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim db As Connection
  Set db = New Connection
  db.CursorLocation = adUseClient
  db.Open "PROVIDER=MSDASQL;dsn=test1;uid=userid;pwd=userpass;database=test1;"

  Set adoPrimaryRS = New Recordset
  adoPrimaryRS.Open "select HR_LOCATION from MASTER_LIST", db, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

  Dim oText As TextBox
  'Bind the text boxes to the data provider
  For Each oText In Me.txtFields
    Set oText.DataSource = adoPrimaryRS
  Next
' --------------------------------------------------------
  Set lblStatus.Datasource = adoPrimaryRS
  lblStatus.DataField = "HR_LOCATION"
' -------------------------------------------------------
  mbDataChanged = False
End Sub
