Default Setting Text Fields in a Tabular Form

I have an Access tabular form whose detail section contains several text box controls, Text1, Text2, Text3 etc. I want to iterate through a programmatically created recordset rsMyForm, assigning values from the recordset to the text box controls on the form, for example:

Me.Text2 = rsMyForm!Some_Column

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

I'm an experienced VBA programmer and have build some pretty sophisticated forms, but my experience with tabular forms is limited to forms that run off a table or query.

Thanks much!

I think you would use the On Current event of the main form. The tabbed form is part of the main form, unless you put a subform on it. If there are just text boxes, then they would work off the main form events.

So for the main form's On Current event:

Declare variables

Set and create recordset, and I am assuming one record in the recordset.


rsMyForm.Open sSQL, CurrentProject.Connection, etc

Me.Text1 = rsMyForm("Some_Column1")
Me.Text2 = rsMyForm("Some_Column2")
Me.Text3 = rsMyForm("Some_Column3")
Me.Text4 = rsMyForm("Some_Column4")


Then if you have update events, you need to code those as well.

Perhaps a queryand subform would work as well.

Thank you for responding, mmcdonal.


o This is a stand alone form, with one line in the form for each record in the recordset, and some counts and totals in the footer.

o I want to iterate through the recordset putting information extracted and calculated from one record into each line.

o Because of the way I'm selecting and computing information from the recordset, I can't just bind the fields in the record to controls. I need to look at the data and then decide which text control to put it into.
