DAP Pet Peeve problem

P: 76
I have a data access page that allows our dispatcher to schedule his deliveries. It is a simple page that shows the days deliveries. It shows multiple records filtered using the date field. It works great, I think, but the guy using it complains to me all the time about one thing. One days worth of deliveries is about 50 records. This makes you scroll up and down in the browser window to see all the records. When you add a new record it goes directly to the bottom of the page and it does not scroll down to show the new record. So, an idiot would hit the button repeatedly because they don't see any change in the screen.

Is there a way to get the new record section to go to the top of the header instead of the bottom? As a fix I tried to create a function that sets the focus to one of the fields after the addNewRecord event is fired but it doesn't work. There is not a msodsc.currentsection.datapages.fields("fieldtofoc uson").focus.

Thanks
James

I don't really know where DAP questions should go, but the Milestones forum is certainly not it. I will move this to Miscellaneous Questions, but if anyone feels they know a more appropriate place feel free to move it on.

ZOMG how did I get in here. Yes move me please.

DAP should go in Access I guess. It may get better results in the VB or ASP section though because many of the concepts and code are similar.

True, questions on DAP don't get many expert responses in Access because most Access developers won't use them. I'll move this to VB for the moment and see how it goes.

What do most Access Developers use?

Most Access developers have databases handled locally (or internally networked). As such they don't need web technologies at all. Obviously that's just most and not all, but a large enough proportion to make help much less likely than other parts of Access. You're welcome to post something though, of course.
