In an Access form a recordset can be filtered by using the standard MS-Access filter buttons. Is it then possible to loop through that filtered recordset with VBA?

If you reference the recordsetclone property of the form, it will reflect the current filtering of the forms recordsource (as well as positioning within that recordset).


Dim rs as DAO.Recordset

Set rs = Me.RecordsetClone

rs.MoveFirst
While rs.EOF = False

'Do your thing here

rs.MoveNext
