    BeforeInsert Event Not Working

    Hey everyone,



    For aesthetic purposes I have custom navigation buttons on a form. The record count should update BeforeInsert, On Current, and On Load. The code is simple, but I can't seem to get the record count to update until after an update. I'll go to my form, enter a new record (it will say 6 of 5), and only once I go to a previous record does it count the sixth record (5 of 6). Am I missing something?

    Code:
    Private Sub Form_BeforeInsert(Cancel As Integer)
    Set rs = Me.RecordsetClone
    
    rs.MoveLast
        Me.txtRecCount = Me.CurrentRecord & " of " & rs.RecordCount
    End Sub

    From MS:

    The BeforeInsert event occurs when the user types the first character in a new record, but before the record is actually created.

    I see what you're saying. It does kick in, but the record still doesn't exist, so the count is the same. Hmmmm...

    What function can I use to make it work the way the normal navigation bar works, to update the "# of #" to reflect the "new" record, even if it hasn't been created yet?

    Completely untested, but in the before insert event couldn't you add 1 to whatever your test returned? And then in an update event set it to actual?

    Code:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
      DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acLast
      DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acFirst
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Form_Current()
     If Not Me.NewRecord Then
      Me.txtRecCount = "Record  " & CurrentRecord & "  Of  " & RecordsetClone.RecordCount & "  Records"
     Else
      Me.txtRecCount = "Record  " & CurrentRecord & "  Of  " & RecordsetClone.RecordCount + 1 & "  Records"
     End If
    End Sub
