Adding records to a table using a data entry form

Adding records to a table using a data entry form

Adding records to a table using a data entry form

I am having trouble adding more than one record to a table using a data entry form.  I have a form that is set up to be a data entry form (data entry property set to yes).  On this form is a command button to add another record--here's the code the wizard created --

DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec

The form is based on one table.  When the form is opened it displays a blank record--once you fill it in and click on the command button to add another record, you get a message about being at the end of a recordset and can't go to the specified record.


RE: Adding records to a table using a data entry form

You'll get this message if the record shown on the form doesn't pass validation criteria. For example, there may be validation rules for a field that this record doesn't meet, or it might create a duplicate record, etc.

Have you first checked to see if the record is valid?

RE: Adding records to a table using a data entry form

Good point, but that wasn't it--the text fields in the table had the "Allow zero length" set to no and I changed them all to yes.  There is only one required field and I have made sure that it is filled in before trying to add another record. I also tried entering data in all the fields also.

Any other ideas?  It seems so basic!  How do other people add multiple records to a table??
