I have a generic Audit utility.
I populate a text field with the formname and other data.

I was wondering if there was any way to refer to actual value of the "primary index" without knowing what the name of the index was.

I would like to be able to refer to the actual "primary index" value in my audit string.  (A sort of form.primaryindex function??)
(As I write this question I am becoming consious that a form could have multiple tables and therefore multiple "primary indexes".   Therefore my query may be impossible! ?)

Not sure what you are really needing here. If you include the primary key in the query, you can then use it as the control source for a text box.

Thanks AkAlan,

I have not expressed my query well.

In all honesty I have had a couple of glasses of wine ... and this query is a complex one!

I will award the points and close the query (for the moment!)
