current record <definition>
The record in a recordset that you can modify or retrieve data from. Only one record in a recordset can be the current record; however, a recordset may have no current record. For example, after a record has been deleted from a dynaset-type Recordset object, or when a recordset has no records, the current record is undefined. In this case, operations that refer to the current record result in a trappable error.
