HowTo: Clear Form Fields after Search and Edit.

HowTo: Clear Form Fields after Search and Edit.

HowTo: Clear Form Fields after Search and Edit.

How to I clear form fields (record source is a query), once I have searched for and updated a record.  I search from a combo box selection. I edit 3 or 4 fields. Then, I want to clear my screen, (the fields) and search for another record to update.  Does anyone know how to clear (blank-out) form fields? I should note that some are text and some are combo boxes.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the assistance.  But I noticed after update about five records that this clears not only the form fields but also the data in my table.  I only want to blank-out the form fields.  Do I need to textbox fields for the and then initialize them to the value of the table fields and use these values on the form in order to prevent deleting data from my table?
