Form_Current

I'm just getting into VB at my new job and I'm assigned to work on another persons partially completed Access project.  Can somebody please give me some detail on Form_Current such as when does it get called and such.  He has many forms already built and Form_Current seems to get called several times for each event.  Also, are there any good online resources for these simple questions so I don't have to keep asking them here??  I did a search on google for this first and found nothing of value.  


Thanks

This is the serious down side to being a 3rd shift programmer.  Nobody on here to help out with questions.

Form_Current gets' called when there is a new record selected.

The Current event occurs when the focus moves to a record, making it the current record, or when the form is refreshed or requeried.

When you first open a form, the following events occur in this order:

Open → Load → Resize → Activate → Current

Etc..

Just type Current Event into Mr Paper Clip, and he'll show you the light.

Depending on how detailed you need your answers, and what you're after (ie this Q could be solved by simply using the Access help, but if you need some code debuged, then it's probably best to post here).

Also, this probably should have been posted in the Access TA { http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/

Actually if I do a search for "form_current" in Access help it doesn't return any results.  If I do a search for "form current" I get a bunch of information that doesn't actually discuss form_current.
