Determine End of record and Beginning of Record from Macro Builder

I have a need to determine the BOR and EOR from within the Macro builder environment. The Form I am using has the Previous and Next buttons which work fine until you get to EOR or BOR. I have read the other thread which solves the problem via coding, however I was hoping for a solution using just the Macro Builder.

I have included the Previous Button Macro as an Image.

Cheers

You will have to abandon Macros and use VBA.

Note that after you reach the last record, you will move to a new record (this is the form's default functionality), so you will get the message about being at the end of the records after moving from this "New" record.

Here is a sample

Please explain *clearly* what you mean by:
"determine the BOR and EOR"
In what context?

Are you looking to simply move to the last field of a record?
Or are you actually trying to find the very last character in the last field of a record.

Also clearly state the reason for needing to do this.

Or do you mean EOF.
(End Of File)

Meaning the last record in the table???

I can only see this being done easily with VBA, not macros...

Macros can only do so much.  If you need to iterate through a recordset, using BOF and/or EOF, you need to write VBA code.

I am wanting to navigate through a recordset and when I reach the last record the form then returns to the first record. And in to the last record when the first record is reached.

My reason for using macros and not VBA is due to my lact of knowledge in VBA. I do want to learn VBA at some stage, I just haven't had the need to.

May I ask to be stepped through using VBA to solve my current question.

Thank you in advance.

This would create a non-standard, counter-intuitive user interface.

Typically when the last record is reached, clicking the Next Record button, will create a new record, not move you back the the first record.
...Either that or a simple message is displayed: "You have reached the last record"

The same is true when navigating to the first record, simply display a message.

In either case, this is much easier to be done in VBA than with a macro.

Sorry for the delay in replying, I work on a mine site and our internet has been down for a week... Anyway, I am happy to perform the necessary operations in VBA if I can be directed by or shown were I can get the information from to be able to do this.

Thanks

After rethinking my plans, having a message to indicate first and last records will work quite well.
If you could direct me, boag2000, that would be fantastic.

cheers
