Hi all,
I'm in the process of creating a check register in access.  There will be 100's of records.  II have the records sorted by date.

I'd like to be able to have the form auto-scroll down.  Ie, I'd like to see the most recent events which are at the bottom and be able to scroll up to see the history.

The problem is, when entering in new checks, it keeps scrolling to the top.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Why are you not sorting DESC in your form?

So, if we sort DESC, you still have to scroll down to insert new checks.
