MS Access 2003 Datasheet view and record update

I have a (datasheet view) form that has link column with a click event.

This form may have 1000 records in it and they are sorted on a particular column (Money) descending order.

The process is for management to work their way down the list and "select" particular records for a visit.

WHen selected...an update (VBA Stored Procedure on SQL Server) takes place.

Now...ANNOYING PART
Whether I do a Me.Form.Requery or refresh doesn;t matter.
The datasheet cycles all the way to the top record.

Then management has to scroll down to where they left off

Any way to do the update and sta on that particular window/view?

OK ... let's assume you have an auto counter for Primary Key (?)

Dim lID as Long.
lID = Me![ID] ' get current record ID

' code, requery, etc.

With Me.RecordsetClone
    .FindFirst  "[ID] =" & lID
     Me.BookMark = .Bookmark
End With

I guess the BM gets wiped when the Requery happens

Note:  I used ID as an example field name.

try t his

dim vBM As Variant
vBM = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark  ' set current location

'   you stored procedure code here
' and/or requery, etc

Me.Bookmark = vBM  ' restore previous location

I tried that but it's setting the variant = 1

I went to record 5000
Ran my update with the code below
But it sets it back to the tom.


            Dim vBM As Variant
            vBM = Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark  ' set current location
        
            'Assuming vbYes has been clicked, proceed with attempt to insert/update record
            Dim cmd1 As New ADODB.Command
            Dim rst1 As ADODB.Recordset
            
            cmd1.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
            cmd1.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
            cmd1.CommandText = "usp_MarketingVisitEdit"
            cmd1.Parameters("@id") = IIf(remove = 1, Me.txtVisitID, 0)
            cmd1.Parameters("@clientID") = Me.Client_ID
            cmd1.Parameters("@AE") = Me.AE
            cmd1.Parameters("@requester") = "Management"
            cmd1.Parameters("@remove") = remove
            
            Set rst1 = cmd1.Execute()
            
            'Message will come back from sql.
            'Inserted, Updated, or "Meeting request already made today
            MsgBox rst1![replyMessage], vbOKOnly, "Submitted"
    
            Form.Requery
            Me.Bookmark = vBM  ' restore previous location

Going to try that.
When I set a integer variable to CurrentRecord I get the right number.

In a datasheet view is there no way to then go to that record?

The can't actually create a new record.
They're just changing the status on that particular record

Tried your last example.
Getting error message on .FindFirst

??

Why do you have the DoCmd.GoToRecord?  You don't need that.
Setting the Form Bookmark will go to the record.

Also, seems the error is occurring elsewhere ?

In my datasheet view, I scroll down to whatever record I wanted to change

When I clicked on it I can capture the "CurrentRecord"

After my requery I'm doing a DoCmd.GoToRecord

Is there something I'm missing and a reaso I should not do this?
I'm not the pro in MS Access by any means and just want the best solution.

Here's what's actually working now.
Should I not be doing this?

Well, if it's working, I cannot argue with that :-)

It's just that I'm not sure CurrentRecord will be intact after a Requery ... but if it seems to be working, then I guess you are good to go.

Is this Form bound to a Access table or query ?

Its bound to a SQL Server 2005 view

Well, I'm not sure that RecordsetClone (etc) work in that case ... but no matter, if what you have is working ...

This pointed me in a "process" right direction.

Sometimes, just having an idea where to start works wonders.
