Hello Experts,

I would like to navigate to a record based on unique data in a table matching a data in a text box on a form.

E.g. GoToRecord where tbl_xyz.[UniqueField] = Forms!frm_xyz.[SearchCriteria]

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

you can use


with me.recordsetclone
      .findfirst "[UniqueField]=" & me.[SearchCriteria]
     if not .nomatch then
       me.bookmark=.bookmark
       else
       msgbox "Record not found"
    end if

end with


if Uniquefield is Text data type, use this

with me.recordsetclone
      .findfirst "[UniqueField]='" & me.[SearchCriteria] & "'"
     if not .nomatch then
       me.bookmark=.bookmark
       else
       msgbox "Record not found"
