It looks to me like the procedure is simply saving the current form record, refreshing the form, and then moving to the next control on the form.

Private Sub SaveRecord3(ByVal strField As String)
<< procedure that requires a string value to be passed into it as a parameter/argument.  Based upon the following code it appears the string value should be the name of a control on the form >>

     Dim lngRecapIdx As Long, l As Long, bolFoundIt As Boolean, lngLastRecord As Long, lngTableIndex As Long, strCName As String
     Dim ctl As Variant
<< variable declarations >> 
     
     bolFoundIt = False
<< initialize Boolean variable to False >>

     lngRecapIdx = Me.RecapIdx
<< assign the value of form control named 'RecapIdx' to the variable lngRecapIdx >>

     lngTableIndex = Me.Controls(strField).TabIndex
<< assign the value of the TabIndex property of the form control specified by the value of strField to the variable lngTableIndex >>
     
     DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
<< perform a menu action - in this case it's supposed to save the current record >>

     Me.Requery
<< requery/refresh the form recordset >>
     
     Me.Recordset.FindFirst "RecapIdx=" & lngRecapIdx
<< find in the forms underlying recordset the record that has RecapIdx = the value of the variable lngRecapIdx; make sure we're working with the same record as we were prior to the requery >>

     Me.Controls(strField).SetFocus
<< set focus on the form control specified by the value of the variable strField -- this is the same control name that was passed in to the procedure as an argument >>

     SendKeys "{TAB}"
<< press the TAB key -- cause the focus to move to the next form control as specified by the tab order >>
