I've been stumbling along with scripting and stumped on how to have a script
launch as I browse through each record. Finally I stumbled across how. The
event is RecordChange and available only as a DocWindow event.
In the script window, under objects, the objects are divided into three
sections. Globals, your application and Approach itself. The last object
available as you drill down your application objects is DocWindow. Care must
be used with attached script. The script will run regardless of the form your
on. If - Then - Else statements must be used to control action for a singular
form. I have had success with the following:
If"My Form Name" Then
'add true action here
'add false action here. False action is optional.
End If
The script executes with each change in record number, regardless of the
method of change.
