Hi

I currently have a simple database where I am using a list box on the Form HomeScreen displaying a list of records  disabled for edits and a Form Detail Screen which is editable and contains all the attributes per record.  Both forms are sourced from a main table, the former displayed via a summary query

I hoped to develop a double click on the the Form Home Screen record to return the corresponding record information in the Form detail.  This failed to pull out the corresponding record on the other form and the code seems to display an error at the last moment - "Application0defined or object -defined error
This code works in a previous database.  I do not know why this is failing as the ID field is a primary key and foreign key.

Code:
'-----Public--

Public Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long

Public Type POINTAPI
    x As Long
    y As Long
End Type


'-Private FormHome screen --
Sub OpenPayload(ID As Integer)

DoCmd.OpenForm "PUDA Form", acNormal, , , acFormEdit, acWindowNormal, ID

Screen.ActiveForm.GotoItem ID


End Sub

Are you sure you're getting the "ID" value correctly? Might way to place a Breakpoint in the code to see what is happening just before the OpenForm call.

Also, you're using the OpenArgs method it would seem, so do you have code in "PUDA Form" to handle that? Using GoToItem is ... fragile, at best, and you should be using a more robust solution to insure that your form is moving to the correct record. In most cases, you'd use code in the Load event to move the form to the correct record:

Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = Me.RecordsetClone
rst.FindFirst "ID=" & Me.OpenArgs
If Not rst.NoMatch Then
  Me.Bookmark = rst.Bookmark
End If

Brlliant. This works now when I paste the code to the second forms on load or on open event. Thanks for teaching me the OpenArgs method
