Find and Replace not working on a form within DataSheet view

I have a form that displays several fields using a Datasheet view.

If I change something manually everything - no problem.  However, if I use the Find & Replace function, I can see everything change as it should on the screen, but when I reload the form - the changes have not been stored.

Any ideas (it's confused the heck out of me)?

If you examine your table more closely you will probably find you have set an index on the field you are updating and when you re-open the form, if you scroll long enough you will find your edited records.

I have a table with over 15000 records and only three values in the first field, indexed and copies allowed.  I changed 3 records, closed the form, reopened and the 'changed' fields seemed to have disappeared.  However after scrolling to the bottom of that particular value I found the three records I had changed using the Replace tool.

Thanks for your response on this, but that isn't it.  I have setup some test records that I always check and it's definately not working (with the Find & Replace function).  I have found via Google, that this is a known issue - but have yet to find a solution.

I am probably going to write a work-around unless someone comes up with a genius idea.

Thanks again.

In the end I simply created used query and modified the task bar to limit control.

This worked perfectly - thank again for your help on this.
