Access Database Reports: Determine what page number will display record "x"

bzspud asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-28
I need  an Access 2003 Database running on Windows to run a report behind the scenes and then return the page number where a specific record "starts".

Example:  My Flower database holds many individual records and I print out a book that has options to A) print one flower record per page as well as B) print the records on continuously with no page breaks.  

I have the code that works for opening the report page in preview mode for a specifc record I have selected.  Note:  This is NOT filtering.  It is the process of viewing or going to (F5 function) a specific page within the report.  ;)

What I don't have figured out is how to find out when the next record starts.  (ie: what if a single record takes up 3 pages, but others pages have 3 records included?).  

Here's what I have thus far:
DoCmd.OpenReport "MyFlowers", acViewPreview
SendKeys "{f5}"
SendKeys "454"
SendKeys "{enter}"

By the way, I've searched high and low just to find anything that would get me this far.  I think I need a point!  *grin*

Any help would be much appreciated.
