Adding records to a table

Adding records to a table

Adding records to a table

I have a form that displays records from a table. I also have a command button to Add a Record to the table.  The code behind the button is DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec.  It works fine for the first record, but if I try to click the button a second time to add a second record, it gives me an error about being at the end of a recordset.  What am I missing?



RE: Adding records to a table

Not sure, never had that problem.
But try saving the record before adding a new one.

Private Sub Command12_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Command12_Click

    DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70

End SubDoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Command12_Click

This is reverse procedure I know, but if the record you just added is not saved it may be at the end of the recordset and give that error.
And saving a record before you add a new one won't hurt anything either.
