Default How to set current recordset (rst.)


I'm not very familiar with VB and ACCESS 2003, I have created a database with a field in wich I can load a binary file. After I've selected the file (browse) I have a button SAVE wich will get the file and save it in the field. The problem I have is:

if I'm using it I'm always updating the file from the 1st recordset. Even if I'm in the 3rd recordset, the file is applied to the 1st one.
So how can I specify to use the CURRENT RECORDSET.

My save button code is:

Private Sub cmdSave_Click()

On Error GoTo err

Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Dim strFileName As String

    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("tblData")
    'check a file path was entered
    If getFileName(txtPath.Value) <> "" Then 'see modGlobals for getFileName function
        'next check file exists
        If fileExists(txtPath.Value, getFileName(txtPath.Value)) Then 'see modGlobals for fikeExists function
            'rst.AddNew 'prepare recordset for a new record
            If ReadBLOB(txtPath.Value, rst, "file") = 1 Then 'stores the binary data see modBlob for ReadBLOB function
                rst!filename = getFileName(txtPath.Value) 'store the filename
                rst.Update 'update the record
                MsgBox "Success!", vbInformation
                MsgBox "Failed!", vbExclamation
            End If
            MsgBox "Specified file does not exist!", vbExclamation
        End If
    End If

If you got the readBLOB Routine of the MS site you should notice that the routine does not move throught the recordset, all it does is Edit the current record. Even though you are passing the recordset and it is on a new record the passing will not remember where the recordset position was and so when the readBLOB routine recieves the recordset it defaults back to the first record. Either pass a variable to the readBLOB routine to act as a bookmark or change the .edit to a .AddNew in the readBLOB routine.
