hi all,

I want the user to be able to view multiple instances of my 'customer form' in my MS Access Project.

I am able to do that : I have created a function that creates a new form and puts its reference in a collection (Coll_Customerforms).

I use the following code to set the bookmark of the new form to a selected value (txt_customernumber).
As you can see, I also change the caption.
Changing the caption works okay, but asking the recordset property is not (method not supported) :

Private Sub cmd_client_Click()
Dim nr, Windownumber As Integer


nr = Me.txt_customernumber
New_Customerform '= function to create and activate new instance of form
Window= Coll_Customerforms.Count
Coll_Customerforms.Item(Window).Caption = "Clientform " & Windownumber
Coll_Customerforms.Item(Window).Recordset.FindFirst "ID=" & nr

Why does this last line not work?

Hi thanks for the comment,

but I found the mistake : I can't use the command "Findfirst" (=DAO), must use the command "Find" (=ADO).
