9.4. Mark a Record on a Form and Return to It Later

Problem

Sometimes you are interrupted when you’re editing a record on a form and need to move quickly to some other record. You’d like a way to save your place and easily return to it later. Is there an easy way to do this in Access?

Solution

Access forms have a Bookmark property that is similar to the bookmark you use when you put a book down but want to be able to quickly return to where you left off. This solution shows how to use VBA code to store the bookmark value of a particular record and return to it, presenting this functionality to your users with a toggle button. The solution also shows you how to add a custom shortcut menu to a control.
