To programmatically read the value from the previous record, regardless of 
how the form is sorted or filtered, use the RecordsetClone of the form.

This kind of thing:

Function GetPreviousValue(frm As Form, strField As String) As Variant
On Error GoTo Err_Handler
    'Purpose:   Return the value from the previous row of the form.
    'Keywords:  PriorRow PreviousValue
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    Set rs = frm.RecordsetClone
    rs.Bookmark = frm.Bookmark
    GetPreviousValue = rs(strField)

    Set rs = Nothing
    Exit Function

    If Err.Number <> 3021& Then     'No current record
        Debug.Print Err.Number, Err.Description
    End If
    GetPreviousValue = Null
    Resume Exit_Handler
End Function

clear records on subform when go to knew record on main form
I am using the unbound combo fields on the main form (date, joblist, personnel) to populate and schedule fields in a subform when I navigate to a new record (new day) on the main form. I would like the subform records to be cleared out for the new record but remain for the day that has already been scheduled. What code and where do I put it. thanks, barb It should be automatic (no code) if your main form and subform are set up properly. Definitions that will make my explanation easier... just sub in your own names: FormMain - Your main form TableMain - The table or recordset und...

Macro for Sharepoint List and another Table?? Same # records?
I am creating a database which we have a form made up of prepopulated data (from a sharepoint list) and also data input needed by a user (for example, comments, etc.). I have two tables: one sharepoint list that is linked to sharepoint website and another table that houses the additional user inputs [table 2]. I have linked the files based on the primary key. So, every record in my table 2 has a plus sign and it will expand and you will see the linked data from the sharepoint list. Is there a way that I can automatically create a record for every corresponding record ...

Ctrl key to select records to print won't work
For some reason, I am unable to select non-adjacent records to print by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking the record selector boxes. I can choose adjacent records while holding down the Shift key and choosing selector boxes. Any ideas? I've never tried that with Access. I just did with Access 2007 and it won't select non-adjacent records as you stated. Seems that your options would be to sort the data so that the records are adjacent or better define the criteria in a query to only return the records that you wish to print. -- Jerry Whittle, Microsoft Acces...

Save New Record that is not dirty
I have a form that opens with information already in filled into all of the text boxes. The information is either from another form or defaulted into the text boxes. Example: The "AcctNum" is from the "NewAcct" Form. The "ReqDate" is default "Date()". The "Status" Field is defaulted as "UnderReview". This information only needs to be reviewed and then the form closed. With this in mind all textboxes are locked. When the form is closed, I want a new record saved in the table that the form references which would be &...

Can 2 DB's share a common record ID?
I have 2 manufacturing databases that are duplicates of each other. Each has a table of records for mfg runs with an autonumber RunID. I would like to ensure that the same RunID is assigned only once between the 2 databases. For instance if database A has issued RunID #34065 then database B would not be able to issue that same number. The second line has only recently come into existence and there is substantial legacy programming for the earlier line. What strategy can I use?

Fields in a record are on the next line
I have a SS with six fields as follows: Record 1- A1, B1, C1, D1, A2, B2 I want to move A2 to E1 and B2 to F1 so Record 1 is on one line. The present structure now is first record: A1 B1 C1 D1 A2 B2 Line 3 Blank line and the next line (4) is the second record. A4 B4 C4 D4 A5 B5 Line 6 Blank line etc. There are 2600 records like this. How can I correct this problem, automated, if possible. Thanks, Dan It won't be too bad manually. Put this in E1: =IF(MOD(ROW(),3)=1,A2,NA()) Put this in F1: =IF(MOD(ROW(),3)=1,B2,NA()) And drag down your 2600 rows. You'll end up with errors on r...

Industry Type Data map issue (max records allowed, possible bug?)
Hello, We are using a data map to import some new accounts, and are using the data map to import the industry type along with the rest of the information. We seem to be hitting an issue where the import seems to fail if we increase the total number of industry type mappings beyond a certain number (not sure of the number). But if we ignore the field, or start the map again and use a smaller number it works fine. Obviously we dont want to have to keep doing this when importing large amounts of data though. Has anyone come across this issue before? HI, There is a couple different way t...

I am trying with: =Count([EventEmployee subform].[Form]![EmployeeID]) But I get and error on the text box Thanks You could use a query as the source of the field on your main form. You could also use a field in the Footer of your subform and do the calculation there. You can then reference that field on your main form.

MS Access 2003 Options | Edit Find Confirm Record Changes doesn't
The MS Access 2003 Options | Edit Find Confirm Record Changes doesn't work. It should work: so that if ever a record is modified, the user is prompted to confirm those changes. What is the best workaround for this so that record changes can be confirmed prior to being comitted ? Thank you, 1. Allow users to only see the records through a form. Do not allow them to get directly into tables or queries. 2. In the form use an even like On Dirty to create see if a record has been modified then bring up a message box to confirm the change. -- Jerry Whittle, Microsoft Access MVP Light...
