current event not firing

P: n/a
I've got a database that has been working successfully for a number of
years now. I just added a new item - basically a field that becomes
visible depending on another field's value. When I was testing this, I
noticed that the OnCurrent event wasn't firing. I went to an older
version of the program and saw that it wasn't firing there either. I
don't know how long this has been going on, but it's quite distressing.
To test the firing, I put a msgbox message in the oncurrent event of
the form and then just used the arrow keys to go from record to record.
Am I missing something? Can anyone give me a clue?

Sometimes in Access an Event Procedure can be "disconnected" from the
form. The code is still there, but it won't be called.
The remedy is to design the form, get the form-level properties, and
for the OnCurrent event select [Event Procedure].
