Can't go to new record


L

LAS

I have a routine that adds a new record, either when the parameters retrieve
no record (works fine) or when the user clicks an "add button." In that
case I can see that a new set of empty fields show up in my form. I can
scroll to them, but if I try to enter data into any of the fields the
pre-existing populated record pips into place (Only one row can be seen at a
time on the form.) I tried to remedy this by adding the "goto record"
statement. That produced "Can't go to specified record." I found some
stuff on the web about the "before update" event not having completed. I
tried adding .update.

Note, unless it is the real reason for my problem, please don't focus on my
use of recordsets instead of form controls. I have a large, complex
application, am under some time pressure, and will explore that when I have
more space (referring here to other threads in forms and forms coding.)

If irst_StudentTracking.RecordCount > 0 Then
irst_StudentTracking.Edit
irst_StudentTracking.Update
End If
Me.AllowAdditions = True
irst_StudentTracking.AddNew
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
irst_StudentTracking!Student_ID = cboStudent_ID

TIA

I just re-read David Fenton's reply to my post "Me.Recordset vs a variable"
in "forms coding." At the time I didn't have a particular problem, so I
didn't notice the part about "your problem with a new record." About 8
hours later I discovered I did have this problem with a new record. He said
my new record problems would go away if I used the Me! syntax for controls
and fields. I am engaged in doing that. Please consider this posting null
and void, as the behavior is changing. This particular problem has gone
away. I'm still having problems, but will re-post.
