I am trying to set focus to a control after it has been populated by recordset...the following does not work. I want to also have all text selected --
control a does not seem to work in access

Set rst1 = InventoryDb.OpenRecordset(strRS)
If rst1.RecordCount > 0 Then
If rst1("Comments") <> "" And Not IsNull(rst1("Comments")) Then
[txtProComments] = "LAST COMMENT:" & rst1("Comments")
rst1.Close
Me.Refresh
[txtProComments].SetFocus
SendKeys ("_")

No good. get the error message:

run-time error '2108'
you must save the field before you can execute the GoToControl action,
the GoToControl method, or the SetFocus Method...

I'm missing some endif statements, but try:

Set rst1 = InventoryDb.OpenRecordset(strRS)
If rst1.RecordCount > 0 Then
  If rst1("Comments") <> "" And Not IsNull(rst1("Comments")) Then
   me.txtProComments = "LAST COMMENT:" & rst1("Comments")
 endif
endif
rst1.Close
Me.Refresh
me.txtProComments.SetFocus
SendKeys ("_")
