I have an Access form where I have two Hyperlinks.

1. The first link is to the Quote page and it works fine.
2, The second link is to another Entry page. I copied the first link and changed the code to call the Entry Page.  It brings up the correct page but it does not bring up the record identified.  It opens the form as new.

below is the event procedure line I am using.
If you look at the filter on the Entry page, the filter is being sent to the new page correctly.

DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEngineeringEntry", acNormal, , "[QuoteID]=" & Me.[QuoteID].Value, acFormEdit, acWindowNormal

Check the properties on the Data tab of the form.  It sounds like DataEntry is set to Yes.  Setting the DataEntry property to Yes tells the form to open to a new record prepared for data entry.

I don't think you need the ".value" part of you "Me.[QuoteID].Value".  I've used this code a million times and simply used = me.quoteID.

Correct.  The .value property isn't necessary since that is the default property of the control.  But, that isn't causing the problem.
