MS Access - query a form question

I have a form that I wanted a quick way to navigate to a specific record via a 'ticket number'

I came up with this to avoid having to write a query and involve a new form but is there a way to use a query called by a button to retrieve the matching record(s) and make the form navigate to the record(s)? I know that would be much quicker than this method.

Thanks for the help

DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "TicketForm", acGoTo, 1

Do Until TicketNumberEntry = TicketNumberBox

DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext

Loop
