Default Select a field on a form, based on variable

I have a form, that has quite a few diffent text fields on it. They are all named very similar, (like txtC1, txtC2, txtM1, txtM2, etc)

What I'm wanting to do, is be able to select a certain field on this form, based on a field name that I am stringing together from criteria that is being built.

So, instead of doing the following...


I would like to substitute that for some like

where strField is being defined in a previous line of code.

My question is, how do I go about selecting that field like that?

Try something like this...

Where strControl is the name of the control that you want to set focus on.


Hope that helps,
