Howdy all,

Silly one:  I have a form onto of a table and I want to be able to use a "go to" to jump to a specific record. number.

The form is called "frm log" and the record I want to use is the unique log number "ID", I have created a field on the form to add the record number I want to jump too and a button, but dont seem to be able to get the VB behind the button to work.

All help greatfuly received.

If you use the wizard to add a combobox and select the option to create one that finds a record in your form, then add the fields you want, should do it.

If you don't want to use a filter check out this solution:

 Dim rs As DAO.RecordSet

    Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
    rs.FindFirst "[ID] = '" & Nz(Me.[txtField],0) & "'"
    Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
