Hi

Microsoft Access 2010 working in a continuous form.

I have screen where the user enters data into 15 or so fields.     The primary key is [StockNum].


When the user has entered data into the last field [Rec Creation Date],  then I would like to automatically enter the edit mode for the next record that needs to be entered.

Could someone please tell me the event and criteria so that I can jump start the next record with the following code after they  tab through or otherwise save the new record that they have just entered.

[StockNum] = Nz(DMax("[StockNum]", "[tblStockItems]")) + 1


Thanks

Try this -

- Make sure that your  [Rec Creation Date] is set as the last tab stop on the form
- Make sure the "Enter Key Behavior" for that field is set to "Default Behavior"

Like this, tabbing or hitting enter in that field will take you to a new record, automatically saving the current record

Then in the Current Event of your form:

If Me.NewRecord = true then Me.StockNum = Nz(DMax("[StockNum]", "[tblStockItems]")) + 1

Open in new window
