Proper call & parameters to "docmd.gotorecord" from a form where target code is in a module

Hi

I am using Office 356 ----  Microsoft Access

I would like to put the following code in a module

Public Sub DoThis(????  )
     DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acFirst
End Sub

Open in new window


I would appreciate an example of a call to this sub as well as correcting that code above

Thanks

The code you have would most likely go behind a Command Button, to go to the first record on a Form.


Private Sub btnFirst_Click()
    'Goto the frist record on the Form
    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acFirst
   
End Sub

I have no problem running the code when the code is in it's normal place (Form VBA)

I would like to run that code  in a module ,  so that code in other forms can use the same routine.


So, that's not the answer that I am looking for.

Sorry .... OK ... put this code in a standard Module

Public Sub GoToFirstRecord()
     DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, Screen.ActiveForm.Name, acFirst
End Sub

Then ... from where ever, you can call like this:

Call GoToFirstRecord
