Dim db As DAO.Database

          Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

          Set db = CurrentDb

               Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("parts", dbOpenDynaset)

               With rs

.FindFirst "[text]='" & Forms.Formname.text1 & "'"
Substitute Formname with the name of the form.
Do you have a field in the table called Text?
If so maybe change the name of the field.
If not replace text with the name of the field
