I have a form (which is opened by a Not In List event in another form) which opens in DataMode:acFormAdd  
I'd like to create a control button on the form so that the the user can switch to acFormEdit.

Can it be done?  What code do I need for my control button?

Ludique,

You have to make sure this is what you want.

The form "probably" opens in acFormAdd mode so you can enter a new item for the list.
While in add mode you can edit the current record.

Lots of strange things can happen if you change the From mode at the wrong time.

Can you explain what you are trying to do?
