do you mean moving back to the last viewed record after adding a new record?

before going to New record, store the unique record id to a variable
dim lastID as Long 'or String if ID is Text data type
lastID=me.txtID

' add new record process here
'after saving the new record
'look for the last record viewed

with me.recordsetclone
       .findfirst "[ID]=" & lastID    ' for NUMBER type ID
       if not .nomatch then
       me.bookmark=.bookmark
       end if
end with


post back if this did the job

No the form always ends up at the correct record, but the cursor is sitting at a different form control?(if that makes sense)
So I think I need to read what control the cursor is at, then after the last move I want to move the cursor back to this same control.
The form can get rather long and when the user selects to move to the next record, the form will move up and down to fit the screen.

Or after each move to next record, position the mouse cursor to the first or second control on the form?
