I am trying to add an extra textbox/combo to help me insert search criteria so that users can go to a particular record without having to resort to the use of findnext and findprevious only.
I tried to do it like this:

Private Sub FindSICode_AfterUpdate()
    DoCmd.FindRecord Me.FindSICode
End Sub
This keeps on giving me the error 'Ther command or action "FindRecord" isnt available now'
This can easily be implemented when u r dealing with unbound controls but I would like to find out if its possible to do it with bound controls.Thanx a lot
