Keyboard key to move to next record? Access 2000

Post by ChrisGreaves »

I'm still in my first 15 years of using Access ...
I have looked in vain through Access Help for any hint that one might use the keyboard rather than the mouse-click to move forward or backward by one record.
My form provides records in sequence, and while I can click, I tend to be looking at the form, not the next/previous button; when the mouse pointer drifts away, the results are not pretty.
It seems to me that tapping a right-arrow key (or equivalent) would be safer.

I have had some success in coding for a variety of buttons on my form, so I could do that for Previous/Next and provide a shortcut key, but thought to ask here first in case I have missed a built-in keystroke.
Thanks.

:yep: (freaking me out). I was *sure* there was one, looked up, looked down. Refrigerator blindness kicked in. "smash" is so close by that it dragged my eyes away from "stupidme". I'm not having a good day. Should go back to "snore" "hiding".
