MS Access VBA

I have a form with a Textbox that I would like to retrieve the value from the previous record from.
To get that previous value, I would have to show that the value was the same as the record with current ID -1.
How would I show that in vba?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Perhaps use this as a control source?

= DLookup("YourFieldName", "YourTable", "ID = " & DMax("ID", "YourTable", "ID < " & [ID]))

Open in new window

That should retrieve the value of the field in question corresponding to the maximum ID that is less than the current ID.  (Simply retrieving records with current ID -1 may not work as expected if your table has deleted or otherwise missing records)
