I have a form that has a main form and then a subform.  The subform is linked to a different table than the main form.  I am trying to go to the record clicked on the subform.  So example
I click an item in the listbox from the subform and the subform goes to that item number.  I have tried:

'find the first value that matches
Me.[frmsubworkorder].[Form].RecordsetClone.FindFirst _
"[item] = " & [frmsubworkorder].[Form]![List4]

'if a matching record was found, then move to it
If Not [frmsubworkorder].[Form].RecordsetClone.NoMatch Then
[frmsubworkorder].[Form].formBookmark _
= [frmsubworkorder].[Form].Form.RecordsetClone.Bookmark
End If

When I try this I get the following runtime error:
Run-time error '2465':
Microsoft Office Access can't find the fild '|' referred to in you expression.

I have checked and list4 is showing the correct item number.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!  Thanks in advance!

try this using the afterupdate event of [List4], or using a click event of a button in the subform


private sub list4_afterupdate()

with me.recordsetclone
       .FindFirst  "[item] = " & me.List4
      if not .nomatch then
       me.bookmark=.bookmark
       else
        msgbox "Record not found"
        exit sub
      end if
end with

end sub



Note: if [item] field is Text data type use
       .FindFirst  "[item] = '" & me.List4 & "'"
