How to point to recently Added record in Continuous form from Entry form

I have a continuous form that the user can select a record and click on Edit or Add and it will open an Entry form.

If the record is edited, once the entry form is closed, the pointer will be on the record worked on.

If a record is added, once the entry form is closed, the pointer will be on the first record on the continuous form.

How can I make it point to the new record in the continuous form ?

The following is my code:
Private Sub Command28_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command28_Click
'save

Dim intIDSelected As Integer

'new
If IsNull(Forms![frmbuyersowners]![id]) Then
   intIDSelected = 0
Else
    intIDSelected = Forms![frmbuyersowners]![id]
End If

    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70

' this points to the edited record
If intIDSelected <> Me.id Then
    Forms![frmbuyersowners].Requery
End If

Exit_Command28_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command28_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command28_Click
   
End Sub

For the EDIT:
Private Sub Command37_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command37_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "frmBuyersOwners AE"
   
    stLinkCriteria = "[id]=" & Me![id]
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria

Exit_Command37_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command37_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command37_Click
   
End Sub

For the ADD:
Private Sub cmdAddBuyer_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdAddBuyer_Click

    Dim stDocName As String
    Dim stLinkCriteria As String

    stDocName = "frmBuyersOwners AE"
   
    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , , acFormAdd

'    DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
   
Exit_cmdAddBuyer_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_cmdAddBuyer_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmdAddBuyer_Click
   
End Sub

Once the Entry Screen opens, then they hit an ADD button:
Private Sub Command36_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command36_Click
'add

    Dim stDocName As String

    stDocName = "Add Buyer to Buyer AE"
    DoCmd.RunMacro stDocName
' this macro setsvalues for basic information - year, location that are generic.

    Me.Refresh
   
Exit_Command36_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command36_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command36_Click
   
End Sub

you will need to declare a global variable in a regular module

option compare database
option explicit

global newRecordID as long




in form "frmBuyersOwners AE"

Private Sub Command36_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command36_Click
'add

    Dim stDocName As String

    stDocName = "Add Buyer to Buyer AE"
    DoCmd.RunMacro stDocName
' this macro setsvalues for basic information - year, location that are generic.

'pass the value of the new ID to the global variable newRecordID
 
newRecordID=me.id

    Me.Refresh
   
Exit_Command36_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command36_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command36_Click
   
End Sub




Private Sub Command28_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command28_Click
'save

Dim intIDSelected As Integer

'new
If IsNull(Forms![frmbuyersowners]![id]) Then
   intIDSelected = 0
Else
    intIDSelected = Forms![frmbuyersowners]![id]
End If

    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70

' this points to the edited record
If intIDSelected <> Me.id Then
    Forms![frmbuyersowners].Requery

'Add these codes
    with me.recordsetclone
            .findfirst "[ID]=" & newRecorID
            if not .nomatch then me.bookmark=.bookmark
    end with



End If

Exit_Command28_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Command28_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command28_Click
   
End Sub

Add your suggested code and the results did not change.

If I EDIT the record, then Exit, it will point to the record that was selected in the continuous form.

Adding one or more records, the pointer on the continuous form went to the first record.

If I take out ...
    Forms![frmbuyersowners].Requery

Then the record pointer will point to the record EDITed and the record ADDED....but the ADD record does not appear in the ORDER BY order.

I have not tried more than one ADDed record which I will do now.

One Edited record and two added records...it is pointing to the edited record when you exit the Entry form. The records are not in order on the continuous form....but if you exit the continuous and open it up again, the records are in order.

I do have a query in the record source of the continuous form  to put the records in Order by.

Then the record pointer will point to the record EDITed and the record ADDED....but the ADD record does not appear in the ORDER BY order.

I will try your new code and get back with you...but what if they hit the EDIT button first, then the ADD button. Does that change things ?

I called the user and they said they are first editing a record from the Entry screen, then they are adding (hitting the Add button) from the same screen.

The conditions I described are Edit first, then Add.

I am still trying the code for the Add directly from the continuous form.

Get back shortly.

Well...this took me longer than I thought....

but still the same results...the continuous form does not show the new record in the order it should appear. I can click on A-Z and it appear in the correct order.
