ACC1x: Control Still Appears on Page After GotoPage Action


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1


After the GotoPage macro action runs and a new page is displayed, the contents of the last control on the source page still appear on the new page.


The GotoPage macro action was run from a macro that is attached to the AfterUpdate property of a control.


Do not include a GotoPage macro action in a macro attached to the AfterUpdate property of a control. Instead, use the GotoPage action in a macro attached to the control's OnExit property.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access versions 1.0 and 1.1. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 2.0.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Create a new macro with the following action, and then save it with the name GotoPage2:

             PageNumber: 2 
  2. Create a new, unbound form.
  3. Size the detail section of the form to be 4 inches tall.
  4. Place a page break control in the form's detail section at the vertical 2-inch mark.
  5. Place a combo box with the following properties in the upper half of the detail section, above the page break control:

          RowSourceType: Value list
          RowSource: 1;2;3;4
          AfterUpdate: GotoPage2 
  6. Place a text box in the lower half of the form's detail section, below the page break control.
  7. Size the Form window so that only the upper half of the detail section is visible.
  8. View the form in Form view.
  9. Make a selection in the combo box.

The form will advance to page 2, and the text box will be selected, as it should be. However, the combo box will still be visible on the page and may overlap the text box.
