MS Access : Goto record

Hi all,

I am relatively new to Access. My question is pretty basic, so hopefully the aswer will be easy for you guys.

I have a main form to manage my contacts, and a "Search Contacts" form. This searchform works great : I can fill in the search criteria, hit the 'search' button, and it shows all records that fulfill the criteria. Next to every record there is a "Goto" button, that launches the main form with the selected record. I used the
 
    docmd.Openform formname,,,criteria

methode to open the contactsform with the resulting record.

But in this contactsform, there is only one record in the recordset.
Is there a way that when I click on the "Goto" button in the searchform, that the mainform is opened with all records in the recordset, but the bookmark is set correctly so the chosen record is visible.
I allready tried to copy the bookmark from my search-query to the recordset of my main form, but these are incompatible.

Thx

If you have a record number in your table (say RecordID), you can fetch the record via:

Me.Recordset.FindFirst "RecordID=" & "YourEntry".Value

In the onload of the form.
