Return on a specific record - Access Form

Hi,

On a main form, I have a list of records, with a details button on each row.

When I click on the details button, a new form is opened with details of the selected record

When I close the details form, I would like to go back on the record previously selected.

Currently, I return on  the top of the records list in the main form.

Since you are likely not having to worry with any deletions, I would consider going a little "lower level" than caps suggestion (assumption is the the pk field is an autonumber and is named RecordId).

Dim lngId As Long
lngId = Me.RecordId

Me.Requery

Me.Recordset.FindFirst "[RecordId]=" & lngId

{note: definately not indicating there is anything incorrect with caps suggestion!}

that is a normal behavior when you Requery the Form, the pointer goes to the first record..

'save the recordid in a variable

dim varID
varID = me.recordId
me.requery

'after the requery, find the record using


me.recordsetclone.findfirst "[recordID]= " & varID
if not me.recordsetclone.nomatch then
me.bookmark=me.recordsetclone.bookmark
end if

To be sure

Dim varId is a module variable

Code:
       varId = me.recordId
is  in click event (detail button)

Code:
      me.recordsetclone.findfirst "[recordID]= " & varID
      if not me.recordsetclone.nomatch then
           me.bookmark=me.recordsetclone.bookmark
      end if
is in Form_Current event

Not really ... the key is this ... When and How to you tell the main form to Requery?  Do you have code in the Detail form that requeries the Main form? or do you have an event that is triggered when the main form recieves the focus again?

Wherever that call to .Requey exists, you need to surround that call with a way to store the value of the current record (I would recommend a procedure level variable, not a module level variable), then the .Requery is called, then you perform the .Find.

Solution used:

In details Form, on click event (closing button)

Private Sub btnClose_Click()

   Dim strActiveRecord As String

   strActiveRecord = "[trainingNo]=  '" & Me.txtTrainingNo & _
                                   " ' AND [departmentId]=" & Me.lstDepartment
    DoCmd.Close
   
   Forms. mainForm.Requery
   Forms. mainForm.Recordset.FindFirst strActiveRecord

End sub
