Default "can't go to the specified record" message

Can someone explain to me what this message means and what causes it? It
seems to happen when I try to set focus to a control. This is on a form that
navigates among reords and allows adding new records.

You need to give more info, but it probably means that the record doesn't
exist in the recordset of the form.

One instance (among many) that will trigger this error msg is when you try
to navigate beyond the first and last record (BOF and EOF) of the data set.
If your form cycles through the recordset instead of the current record,
(meaning what happens when your user tabs from the last control of your
form) then you'll get that msg when attempting to navigate to a non-existent
record.
