I've added Previous and next Record buttons to my form.
How do I prevent error message if the user hits Previous when they are on Record 1?

Thanks

Do you use an Embedded Macro?
If so, you can trap the error by placing for:

Condition: [MacroError]=2105
Action: StopMacro

Error will not being displayed.

Hope this helps,

The quick and dirty way for nav buttons is this:



 On Error Resume Next
 DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext
 Err.Clear
   
 
 On Error Resume Next
 DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acPrevious
 Err.Clear

That's what the Staples Red button says :-)

Now ... what I posted is cheating just a tad.  You should ... add some error trapping to be technically correct. But for 99% of the time, that works.
