code for command button is a mystery

code for command button is a mystery

code for command button is a mystery

I have command buttons on a subform which progress through subsequent years of data on the subform -- i.e. the 1998-99 button shows data for 1998-99, the 1999-00 button shows data for 1999-00.  At the suggestion of the person who created the buttons, I've tried adding a button for this year 2000-01 by copying the 99-00 button and changing one line of the code.  The code for the 99-00 button is below:

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Private Sub cmdFind1998_99Data_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdFind1998_99Data_Click

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acGoTo, 1

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmdFind1998_99Data_Click
End Sub
Private Sub cmdFind1999_00Data_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdFind1999_00Data_Click

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acGoTo, 2

    Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_cmdFind1999_00Data_Click
End Sub

Private Sub Command181_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub Command182_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub Command183_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub cmdFind2000_01Data_Click()

End Sub

I tried changing this line

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acGoTo, 2

to read

    DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acGoTo, 3

I end up with both the copied button and the new button pointing to the new year's data instead of three buttons pointing to three different year's data -- what's going on?

RE: code for command button is a mystery

When in doubt go to the Tape Backup and get the most recent copy you can and look at it carefully before making changes.
