Create a new Form in Form Design and add a Form Header with Labels indicating the field names.

The Single Form will use 2 methods: 1 where the form is truly not bound to the recordset or table and 1 where the form is bound to a temp table of key values from the original table\recordset to enhance navigation with unbound text boxes.

The Continuous Form will use a method where it is "unbound" to the originating table by creating a temp table and binding to the recordset and control sources at runtime.

If you want to view the data using a Next or Previous button in the unbound form, you cannot.

Close Set rs = Nothing Set db = Nothing End Sub Test the form in Form View mode by clicking on the Combo Box and seeing that the record information is displayed in the Text Boxes.

This article will demonstrate how to create unbound forms in MS Access, both Single Form and Continuous Forms.

The main goal is to provide a means of allowing users to view data without modifying it. Create an Unbound form by dragging and dropping text boxes onto the new form in Form Design view. Set the Row Source of the Combo Box to: Option Compare Database Dim db As DAO. Recordset Public Sub get Records() Dim s SQL As String s SQL = "SELECT * FROM Sales_Employees WHERE ID = " & cbo Employee. Open Recordset(s SQL, db Open Dynaset, db See Changes) Me. Name the boxes for the fields in the newly created SQL table, Sales. Thanks again "Darryl Kerkeslager" This may not be exactly the answer you asked for, but I would avoid the whole issue by doing a slight re-design.I've tried to run SQL command UPDATE, but by executing this line, MS Access get error and should be closed by Operating System. Close Set rs = Nothing Set db = Nothing End Sub Private Sub cbo Employee_After Update() Private Sub cmd Next_Click() On Error Go To Err_cmd Next_Click Do Cmd. Description Resume Exit_cmd Next_Click End Sub Private Sub cmd Last_Click() On Error Go To Err_cmd Last_Click Do Cmd. Description Resume Exit_cmd Last_Click End Sub Private Sub cmd First_Click() On Error Go To Err_cmd First_Click Do Cmd. Description Resume Exit_cmd First_Click End Sub Private Sub cmd Previous_Click() On Error Go To Err_cmd Previous_Click Do Cmd. Description Resume Exit_cmd Previous_Click End Sub The Continuous Form in Access cannot be completely Unbound.
