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.

Smartin,

In the Click Event of your button, you may try and copy the code below:

Me.Filter = "[ID]=" & Nz(Me.[txtField],0) & ""
Me..FilterOn = True

Sincerely,

Ed

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.

Cheers

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
