Find Dialog

P: n/a
Hi

Is there a way to bring up find dialog through code while on an access form?
Basically I want the find dialog to come up immediately after the form is
loaded.

Thanks

Regards

Try:
RunCommand acCmdFind

If you want to search a particular field, be sure to SetFocus first.

Yes, you can put VBA into the form's OnLoad event. If you explain in
a bit more detail what "the find dialog" is, then somebody can suggest
more specifics.
