I am copying a current record to a new record via VBA code...

    Dim RS As DAO.Recordset
        Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblMeterCertification")
        RS.AddNew
        RS!RecordDate = Date
	RS!blah, blah, blah
        RS.Update
        RS.Close
        Set RS = Nothing

Open in new window


But after the record has been copied I want the form to close and re-open displaying the new record.

How can I do this?

You don't need to close and reopen the form.
Just use the Recordset behind to copy a record to a new and position the form:
