Hi Everyone

i have created and an  Ms-Access 2010 form and implemented some navigational facility for records browsing for First, Next Previous and last in my form.  

when i used the form independently it works perfectly fine.

Later i created a Single Tab Navigation Form and called the Same forms there but these buttons does not work there rather pop up an error that form is not Open.

If you have placed your original form onto a Navigation form, it has become a subform, and the way objects are referenced automatically change to reflect this.

WHat you can do to sort it out depends on whether you have used code or embedded  macros to implement the button actions.

If you can post the detail of the Next button then we can use that as the model for all.

Unable to reproduce the issue, to my understanding.
A form with a page tab. Dragged a form on the tab. Next button works.

Try to reproduce the issue in a sample database and upload.

Hi Peter

I have used built-in embedded  macros for the functionality may be that's the reason when i am adding to navigational form the functionality does not work.

plz suggest with some code example if i wanted to write code for Record Browsing.

If you have used the button wizard to create the embedded macros then it should not make any difference to the operation and should work OK when you put your form onto a navigation form.  

If you have built the macro yourself then we would need to see it.

However re-reading your Q I'm not really sure I understand what you mean by
' and called the Same forms there '

I had assumed that all you had done was place your original form onto the navigation form, but if you have done something different to that then you will have to explain further.
