    Deleting a record in a table, using VBA

    Hi, I have the following code (see below) which is supposed to select a record in a table when the user enters a customer ID in the textbox of a userform, and then clicks OK, for some reason however, it is not working, when I enter a customer ID in the textbox, and then when I click on OK, all that pop ups is the error message stating that the customer ID could not be found, even when the ID is in actual fact located in the table.

    My table starts in cell 7, (cell 6 if including headings) and there are 5099 records and there are 23 fields, so the table ends in column V.

    Could someone please help me

    The format is general, but I have tried changing it to number, and it still does not seem to work

    Hi jaslake, I have tried your code and it works, the only problem is when I enter a new record to the table, the code fails to pick it up, and just displays the error message that the customer ID does not exist, when it does! Can you please help me?

    Re: Deleting a record in a table, using VBA

    Hi jaslake, I tried your code and it works well, the only problem is when I add a new record (row) to the table the code does not pick it up, and instead the error message pops up stating the ID does not exist, when it actually does, could you please help me on this last problem? I would much appreciate it
