RecordsetClone with Microsoft Access Subforms
Provided by: FMS Development Team
Using a RecordsetClone is an easy way to manipulate records on a subform.
Often you will use this property to perform an operation, then synchronize
the form with the underlying recordset.
You may want to create a recordsetclone to find a record in a subform, and
move the form to the record found. In the example below, we are finding the
first record with a matching last name, then move to that record if one is
Dim strCriteria As String
Dim rstEmployees As Recordset
' Define search criteria
strCriteria = "LastName = '" & Me.txtLastName & "'"
Set rstEmployees = Me.subFrmEmployees.Form.RecordsetClone
' Find the first occurrence
If rstEmployees.NoMatch Then
MsgBox "No match found"
'Move to the record on the subform
Me.subFrmEmployees.Form.Bookmark = rstEmployees.Bookmark
While there are other ways to perform operations on records in a form or
subform, using RecordsetClone is by far the fastest and easiest method.
