I am using the findrecord function and I need to have a message popup if the record isn't found.

The code I am using is:

DoCmd.GoToControl "ID"
DoCmd.FindRecord Me!txtRecord, , True, , True

is the form bound to the table or query?
what does Me!txtRecord contain? is this an input from the keyboard?

Hi Capricorn1

Yes it's a bound form. Me!txtrecord is an unbound text box where the record number is entered from the keyboard.

ID is an autonumber field of the bound form.

If the specific record number doesn't exist (it's been deleted for example, or the record number being looked for is greater than exists) a message box will appear notifying the user the record doesn't exist.

Thanks,
George
