Macro to open form, find record and open another form based on record found
Posted on 2008-09-29
I have a main menu form "frmMainMenu" that has a combo box "cmbPeople" on it that list the people and users select a person, then hit "Go" and the main form "FrmMain" opens and the rest of the information can be entered.
Now I want the users to be able to add a new person quickly - like add their name and bdate, then click "Continue" and navigate to the frmMainMenu, find the newly added person in the conbobox and then open frmMain with that information and then close the new form "frmAddNew", (it has a couple of fields, I also have a continue button on it. It is set to only allow data entry (Data Entry = yes). )
How can I do this? Should I try and use a macro?
Thanks in advance!!!
