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 Locator 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.

The video has an audio commentary and is best viewed at 720p (HD) quality.
