    how to find a record that is a number (Access 2000)

    Can somebody help me with the code for finding a record by typing its number.I have a table of products.
    and each product has an unique number.The first Record is called ProductID.What i need is a command aksing me the number of the product (ProductID) and then finding it. I have looked through some examples of FindFirst in the books,but i am afraid they are already obsolete.

    Assuming your records are in a table, have you tried Edit, Find from the main command bar?

    Assuming you are launching your search from a Form, you could create a parameter query that launches when a form is opened or you press a Command button you create that will ask you for the Unique ID. The Parameter Query would then pass back the data you are looking for.

    I would use a combo box in the header or the footer of the form with the ProductID.
    In the After Update of the Combo box :
    <pre>Private Sub cmbProductID_AfterUpdate()
    On Error GoTo PROC_ERR
    DoCmd.GoToControl "ProductID"
    DoCmd.FindRecord cmbProductID, , , acSearchAll, , acCurrent
    Exit Sub
    PROC_ERR:
    MsgBox "There was an error : " & Error$
    Resume Next
    End Sub
    </pre>

    This assume you name your combobox cmbProductID, you have a textbox named ProductID on the form.
