Select The First and Last Record Fast
When you are working with the Datasheet View or the Form View, keyboard shortcuts can be used to quickly select the first or last record. Use these keystrokes:
- Ctrl-Home: Selects the first field in the first record.
- Ctrl-End: Selects the last field in the last record.
Regardless of the current record, Ctrl-Home displays the first record, and Ctrl-End displays the last record in the underlying data source.
Just click on the button for the Tiproom's Home Page.
Tip comes from Susan Sales Harkins, a private consultant specializing in Access and VBA development. She currently has two technical books on the shelves: "Using Microsoft Access 97" and "Using Microsoft Access 2000." Both are QUE publications.
