Continuous form....... Would like to have the last 7 records in view after I use command DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast:


I am using a continuous form.

DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast:     gets you to the last record.

But, when  I programmatically add a record on my continuous form  and use this command,  the only record that I see  is the last record.

I would like to see (by example) 10 records above the last record.

Here's a little demo of how you can get datasheet and continuous form records into view/position without resorting your records.  Involves the records in subforms.
