Many years ago, I acquired some code to allow me to have the cursor start on my first line of my forms. Even though I have changed the lines to correspond with each form, for some reason, I can no longer get it to work.
The code is,

Private Sub Form_Current()
If DateofPurchase.NewRecord = True Then
End If
End Sub

Previously, this has worked fine. But I can no longer get it to work.  I also clicked Debug, Compile. Still it doesnt work.
What I want is for the cursor to appear on the first line of the form instead of where it was left on the previous entry entered by end user. Thanks.

Why is DateofPurchase twice?

Yea Alex has the solution if that's the actual code you're running. I'd assume it never worked like that, and that it just happened to be tab stop 1 for you and for some reason it's not any more.

In the OnCurrent event for your form all you need is:


That's it. Assuming DateOfPurchase is the first field.
