Access 2010 - Navigation Page, cannot set focus to "inside" form

polkio asked on


I have a simple db, with a set of forms which just adds records to a table. I have created a Navigation Page as per the instructions and it mostly works. The db is set with the nav page to load automatically, which is does, and it displays the first form. However the onload event on the first form (goto new record) does not fire until the actual nav botton is clicked,  even though the form is open. Also, even when the button is clicked I cannot get the focus to go to the first field. I have tried many combinations of forms.subforms.control etc.. but cannot get it right - any ideas.

For reference the nav page is called main. the first form is add client and the control is cname
