Typically, DoCmd operations work on the "current object". That may or may not be "SampleForm" (although in most cases it will).

To insure that you're working with the correct form, you can do this:

DoCmd.OpenForm "SampleForm"
Dim rst As New DAO.Recordset

Set rst = Forms("SampleForm").RecordsetClone

If Not (rst.EOF And Not rst.BOF) Then
  rst.MoveLast
  Forms("SampleForm").Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
End If
