In code you can use   me.keyfieldname   whether or not the field is on the form.  It must be in the form's recordsource of course.

Peter, Thanks, I had thought you could do that but when I tried to use that method to set a parameter directly in an ADODB Command, it didn't work, I had to first declare a variable, then set the variable to the keyvalue, then I used the variable in the Command.

Does Not work

Dim cmd as New ADODB.Command
With cmd
 .Parameters(@MyKeyValue") = Me.MyKeyValue


Does Work:

Dim myKeyValue as integer
myKeyValue = Me.MyKeyValue

Dim cmd as New ADODB.Command
With cmd
 .Parameters(@MyKeyValue") = myKeyValue
