    Unanswered: Record Selection Event

    Hi Everyone,

    I've got a subform that displays in the continuous forms mode. I want to double click on the selected record and have it open a particular form. I can't find the event for the record selection. I can do it if I put the event in one of the fields.

    I'm pretty sure this can be done, I'm just having a 'senior' moment right now!

    Thanx, Stu

    Detail Section On DoubleClick. Had to think though.

    There isn't a perfect one stop place to do it. You either have to put it in the On DoubleClick for the Detail section plus all the controls that sit on the detail section, or settle for a smaller area than just anywhere on the line.

    Thanks

    Thanks Simon and StarTrekker,

    I had put in on the detail section but did not have it on the controls and it didn't work. So I finally decided to just put it on the main field in the detail section with a note telling the user to double click in the field. That seems to work fine.

    Cheers!

    Doing it that way makes it a whole lot easier to manage
