I'm sure this is easy, but.....
I am working with a data entry continuous form. I would like to set up a command button in the form footer to move the cursor to the next row. What would be the VBA behind the command button's click event?
I am using Access 2003.
Thanks

You can you know ... just as well use the built in navigation buttons ... the advantage being that all the error trapping is built in ... along with being grayed out at the appropriated times, plus buttons to move Back, First, Last and New ... in addition to Next.

mx - the reason for the command button is to enable a keyboard shortcut.
jefftwilley, I am accepting your answer; with an assist from Capicorn1 (since his is the exact code that I am using).
Thanks to all,
