Accessing current recod data form VB


When I'm creating form based on query I have all fields added automaticly to my form.
I want to delete for example someID field (textbox) but I still need to access this field from my VB code.

Can I access current record data somehow???
I dont know VB much but meybe somthing like Me.Recordset.column("someID");

Best Regards

Upsss my mistake, wrong group.
This question is not about ms VB.net

But about MS Access
Give me a minute and I will post the answer
Fill in the form and get your FREE NFR key NOW!

I think it's this that you want!

Dim dbGrupo As Recordset
Dim db As Variant
Dim SQL As String

Set db = CurrentDb
SQL = "SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE ID = " & InputBox("my messa")
Set dbGrupo = db.OpenRecordset(SQL)

With dbGrupo
End With

You can refer to any field in the form's underlying recordset like this:


or, if you're running the code on the form, just use Me:


Note the ( ! ) operator ...

Yes I know that i can access any filed i that way.

But i need something else.

I have for example :

SELECT someID, someName FROM someTable

And i save it as my query:  Query1

Than I create new Form1 based on that Query1

Access automagically :) creates text fields:
someID, someName
and lables someID, someName

I can access id for example: Me!someID.Value

But I need to remove field someID from Form1(I dont want to see it in my Form1)
(but remeber that my Form1 is still based on Quer1 so I should be able to access someID for current displayed record)

How to do this.

Either (a) remove it from the form, or (b) make the control invisible. To remove it, open the form in Design view, highlight the control and press the Delete key. To make it invisible, highlight the control and set the Visible property of the control to False.
