Access Tip: Open Form to Specific Record
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

In this Microsoft Access Tip, I'll show you how to create a customer list form where you can click on one customer and then click a command button to open up that customer's full record in a different form. I cover this technique (and lots more like it) in my full Access Level 7 class.

Forms to specific size Comment from Dana M @ 1/18/2019
I have a vague recollection of a DoCmd.Run acCmdSizetoFitForm...  I know I learned it from you, but I can't recall which video course it was associated with.  Our company is stick and staying with MSAccess 2007 - we have older Windows XP & Windows 7 that work perfectly well for all our needs.  I would love to find courses from you that instruct on the use an implementation of runtime 2007 so that I can create databases for small companies that aren't using access.  Thank you for all your good training over the years... I hope there are still new avenues I can utilize your services for.

I searched the site and can't seem to find it, maybe Rich remembers, I'll ask.

There is the "Access Runtime Deployment / Distributing & Securing Applications" course on the Waiting List but not sure the priority.

As a quick start the runtime would just need installing on the client machine and the db created as an accde so it's locked from changes by the user.

Access Tip Open Form to Specific Record Comment from Bea Anderson @ 9/19/2012
Does this work in Access 2007?  When I try it, I don't get any fields for the Sorted list form.  The fields are there for the customer records but not the list records.  

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yep. This works in every version of Access back to AT LEAST Access 2000.
