14.3 Why Is auto enter last visited Not Always Working ?

see attached test db with a couple of initial records
     sample is a simple serial number so it is easy to see record changes.

     opening is auto enter last visited

     district is auto enter last visited


LastValue Test db
• on opening | create record | last accessed value is blank for sample and opening
     • because there is no last accessed record even though one is visible. 
     • How to make this the last accessed record ?
• if we immediately delete that record | create new record | value is blank for sample and opening
     • evidently there is still no last accessed record even though one is visible.
• also after delete if we manually select scroll or arrow another record and |
                new record also blank values
• if we create new record that is blank, do not delete it, and then move to another record
   and create a new record then  last accessed value is correct for sample and opening.

• if we move to a record with different opening and district values and create a new record
  this also works.


I am doing this test because I have code that has worked fine using this for some time which

now does not appear to work.  Hopefully it is just an assumption that I have made incorrectly.


How is last accessed record created?

How do I ensure that a record is the last accessed record?


Thank you, as usual, all thoughts are most welcome.
