Keep current record current after sort

I have a continuous subform that is sorted by ProjID. ProjID is bound to a combo box that is used to select a given project number. When  the project number is changed, the location of the record in the continuous form shifts to meet the sort criteria (after a requery to populate the rest of the data for the record based on the project ID).

Is there a way to highlight (select) the record that was altered so as to not have to search for the new project in the list?

varID= me.recID

    .findfirst "[recID]=" & varID
    if not .nomatch then
