How Do I highlight a string and get the focus into a record on my form

222 100+
Please help me

Using access 2003

I do have a form (continuous) that expand for me all products in a table name "[products]

I made a [textbox] in this form and it is unbounded

What i need is a botton that on click i want to find any part of the field where the [textbox]= [fieldname]---> get the focus on it and highlight it

I'm using this code that i found on this website

Application.Echo False
DoCmd.FindRecord textbox
Application.Echo True

this code works if the form is set to single form ..isn't wroking on the continuous form is there any other method??

Hi, I'm a little confused.

Do you want the user to be able type something into the textbox and find a match for any field on the form or a specific field?

Once found what exactly do you want done? Do you want the entire row selected? Or just have the record selector pointing to the record?
