    Unanswered: Avoiding the use of navigation buttons

    It might be more trouble than it's worth, but I'm trying to avoid using the navigation buttons in a subform, but still display the record count (e.g. 1 of 2) through the use of separate labels and buttons.

    Is there a proper way to do this?

    drop a control onto the sub form
    find the number of records in the sub controls recordsource (look at the movefirst,movelast properties).#placxe that value in the control appropriately formatted

    or use a continuous forms design for the sub form
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Thanks.

    So I've added some forward and backward navigation controls, but re. the forward control, how do I detect if the last record has been reached?

    I essentially want to set 'enabled = false' to the forward control upon reaching the last record.

    I still want them to have the capability to add records (which there's a separate button for), just not by pressing forward after the last record.
