Runtime Error '3020': Update or CancelUpdate without AddNew or Edit

Runtime Error '3020': Update or CancelUpdate without AddNew or Edit

(OP)
I am trying to convert an mdb to VB6.  I want to create a new record, assign a value to a field that is one greater than the highest existing value for that field, and open a form to the new record. Using the following code, I get the above error, and I don't know why!

CODE

Private Sub btnNew_Click(Index As Integer)

    Dim ws As Workspace
    Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim dblAccountNum As Double

    Set ws = DBEngine.Workspaces(0)
    Set db = ws.OpenDatabase("ArtWare.mdb")
    
    strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblClients " & _
           " ORDER BY nfldAccountNum ASC;"
    
    Set rs = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
    
    With rs
        .MoveLast
        !nfldAccountNum = dblAccountNum
        .AddNew
        !nfldAccountNum = dblAccountNum + 1
        .Update
        .MoveLast
    End With
    
    Load frmClient
    frmClient.Show
    
    With frmClient
        .txtidxClients = rs!idxClients
    End With
    
    rs.Close
    db.Close
    ws.Close
    
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing
    Set ws = Nothing
    
End Sub

Try the following:

     .AddNew
     !nfldAccountNum = dblAccountNum + 1
     .Update
  End With
