Hi there,
I am trying to get the total number of records when i am working on a form to write the VB code. But still, I have not found any function that shows it. Could anyone help?
Thank you,

If you open a Recordset (rs) then rs.RecordCount will give you the total number of records.

If you don't know how to handle DAO recordsets have a look at this page:

Try Me.RecordsetClone.RecordCount and assign this result to an Integer

Hope This Helps

The easiest function to use is the Count() function. If you cna't figure out how to use it on MS Access help, let me know, and I'll explain it. It's pretty straightforward.

I forgot to mention that the Count() function is not normally used as part of VB programming. Create a textbox, and put in the Control Source:

=Count(fieldname )

You can use any field from the underlying table, as long as it is on the form.
