Need help with an access max/dlookup

Feb 11, 2019
Hi Everyone,

I'm an absolute novice at best with Access but am trying to learn.

I am running the code below on a button in a filtered form. What I would like to do is run it after my last field is entered IN THE FIRST RECORD and I press the ENTER key
creating a new record. In addition in the SLOT field of the first record we I enter "1". What I would like it to do is in the 2nd record, be 2, third record 3, etc.

Thanks a bunch!!

Dim ID As Long
ID = DMax("ProductID", "Table1")
DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNewRec
Slot = DLookup("Slot", "Table1", "ProductID=" & ID)
Associate = DLookup("Associate", "Table1", "ProductID=" & ID)
DateEntered = DLookup("DateEntered", "Table1", "ProductID=" & ID)

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

just show all records, then filter them all at once.
No dlookups needed:

sub btnFilter_click()
dim sWhere as string 
sWhere = "1=1"
if not IsNUll(cboST) then sWhere = sWhere & " and [State]='" & cboST & "'"
if not IsNUll(cboCity) then sWhere = sWhere & " and [city]='" & cboCity & "'"
if not IsNUll(cboZip) then sWhere = sWhere & " and [ZipCode]='" & cboZip & "'"
If sWhere = "1=1" Then
  Me.FilterOn = False
  Me.Filter = sWhere
  Me.FilterOn = True
End If
end sub
