Access Forms Masterclass #3
Go To Record - A
Custom Record Locator
A common requirement for database users is to quickly
locate a specific record. Whilst Access provides a number of tools for
sorting and filtering a form's recordset there isn't a built-in tool to
help the user quickly find and display a specific record. If you want
one, and you almost certainly will, you will have to build it yourself.
I have built several different kinds of Go to Record tools to suit my
users' requirements and the complexity of the data. This is one of my
favourites and is really easy to build . The video accompanies my tutorial
Access Forms Masterclass #3: Go To Record - A Custom Record
where you can follow the fully illustrated written instructions,
download a sample file containing the completed project, and download a
printable PDF of the tutorial.
