    form returns records not in record source

    Hello -

    I have a report that shows an itemized list of events and sub events. I have an "edit" button next to each date which pulls up a form to edit that event. The form is built off a query that pulls all events greater than or equal to that event (because if the user edits one event, they need to edit all future events as well).

    The query the form is based on runs fine. It only pulls that date and all future dates, however, when I am in the form, if I hit the next button enough, it goes to the end and then views the entry with todays date. No idea why, esp. because that record does not show when I look at the query. Any ideas?


    code on rpt:

    Code:
    Private Sub edit_record_Click()
        Dim formName As String
        Dim dateSearch
        
        dateSearch = Me.date_to_search.Value
        TempVars("search_date").Value = dateSearch
        
        formName = "edit_actuals"
        DoCmd.OpenForm formName, acNormal
    End Sub
    code on qry:

    Code:
    SELECT data_Workflow_Log.ID AS Workflow_ID, data_Workflow_Log.ID, data_Workflow_Log.Date_Entered, data_Workflow_Log.Agent_Name, data_Workflow_Log.[Ad-Hoc], data_Workflow_Log.Action_Items, data_Workflow_Log.Dependencies, data_Workflow_Log.Risks_Issues
    FROM data_Workflow_Log
    WHERE (((data_Workflow_Log.Date_Entered)>=[tempvars]![search_date]) AND ((data_Workflow_Log.Agent_Name)=fOSUserName()))
    ORDER BY data_Workflow_Log.Date_Entered;
    Again, the query returns correct info, but the form also shows todays record, no matter what. I am assuming it is a form preset so any ideas? It is not set to data entry, and it allows additions, deletions, edits, and filters.

    Thanks for any help!

    My guess would be that the current date is being used to populate your Form's Date Field when a New Record is opened. That can be done through the OnCurrent event of the Form, checking to see whether the Current Record is a New Record, or through the Default Value Property at the Form-level or Table-level.

    thanks - However, it is not sent to default to anything. Infact, it opens up to the correct record just fine. It isnt until I continue to use the next record button that it brings me back to the current date.

    For example, if I have dates for every day from 1/1/13 to 1/29/13 and I select to view date 1/27/13, it will bring up the 27th, and then I can use the next button to go to the 28th, the 29th, and then it will show the 14th. No idea why....
