I am working on a form which displays data one record at a time one field over another. These fields are bound to the
recordsource of the form.
I have an unbound textbox on the form. I am using this to find records to be displayed on the form, depending on string
entries which I make in the unbound textbox. This is fairly standard and the vba code is functioning quite well.
I have removed the record selectors from the form. I am having the following problems:
1. When I try to make the record selectors appear again on the form, by marking the record selector option to yes on the
format column of the properties, I am not managing to make them appear. Quite strange. There must be a reason which I am not
2. Since on occassion there may be two or even more records that match the string which I am putting in the unbound textbox I
will need the record selectors appear so that I can view all the possible fits. How can I make the record selectors appear
and disapper using vba ?
Would appreciate if someone knows how to do this and leads me a bit so that I can get the hang of it.
I would like to edit this entry. Just to be sure the record selectors which I am referring to is the small control box which
appears at the foot of the form, showing the number of records and a mechanism like< > so that one can move from one record
to the other and to both ends.
Many thanks to everyone.
