Hello All,
when i enter a row via a form and hit enter, the form jumps up to first row. The form is in DataSheet view type. I dont like it goes up to the top of the row. How cani do it so that it stays where the scroll is  - any after update event?

Thank you

It will not do that except if you have some code that performs a requery of the form.
Double-check that.

Yes, read the ID before requerying. Then after the requery:

   With Me.Recordsetclone
   
        .FindFirst "ID = " & ID

        if .NoMatch then
            msgbox "ID value not found"
        Endif
        me.bookmark = .Bookmark

    End With
