Forms problem

P: n/a
I have a form that holds line items in an Order entry project. If the
order exist all the line items are changeable. If I want to add a line
item it goes to data entry and the item is added, but all I can change
now is the record that I added. How do I get the Form out of Data
Entry and be able to see all records including the added one. It's
like my query for the form is gone.
Thanks in advance...

You don't explain how the form "goes to data entry". Is it a
continuous form? If not, how is the form being "switched" to data
entry?

In any event, it sounds like you need to requery the form.

How and where you do that depends on how you go to "data entry" now.

Below is the code that sends the form into data entry mode.

This is for adding a new line. Once this code executes the form is then
in data entry mode. All I can now see after the record is added is that
record. the other lines that are on the order are not there anymore.
If Me!LineTC = "A" Then
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDataEntry
Me!UbLineNumber = 5000
Me!LineNumber = 5000
Me!PartNumber = "Add Part Here"
Me!PartDescription = Null
Me!SpcCode = Null
Me!Price = 0
Me!Weight = 0
Me!Quantity = 1
Me!QuoteID = Forms!QuoteForm!QuoteID
Me!UbLineNumber.SetFocus
End If

This is for lines that already exist.
This work fine and the query stays for the order entry number.
If LineTC = "C" Or LineTC = "D" Then
Me!UbLineNumber = Null
Me!UbLineNumber.SetFocus
End If

I do a requery after the line is added and the record navigation number
just shows 1 record which is the record just added. If I close this form
and open it back up the records added is there along with all the
existing line items. It is a single form by the way and is Access 2000.

How do you "do a requery"? [Be patient, we will get there.]

Instead of DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDataEntry, what you want is to
docmd.GoToRecord ,,acNewRec

That will move you to the new record, but you can scroll through
the existing ones.
