Deleting records in main form and subform

This question refers to a main form with a continuous form subform.

After an error occurs after entering several records in the subform, how can I
delete all the data in the main form and all the records in the subform? I have
tried undoing both the main form and the subform and I have tried deleting the
record in the main form.

Thanks!

I suppose the easiest way would be to set referential integrity.

I had a situation yesterday where I had a main table and a few child tables. I
asked, in the OnDelete, for confirmation on deleting. If No, I canceled. If yes,
I deleted. My MainForm was using a LeftJoin.....select all records from main table
and if there are records in another table that match the id, use some of those
fields....as the recordsource. I deleted all child table records and expected all
records to go away....that almost happened except the main record would "go away"
but if I opened the form again, there was the record I just deleted.

What I did....I set a global variable at the top of the code window.
Dim lngID as Long

Then if the delete was confirmed I did something like
lngID = Me.MainFormID

Then in the AfterDelete event I then ran a bunch of queries to delete the child
record for that record (as I don't have relational integrity set on those tables)
then I ran a delete query for the current record for just the table....not the
Recordsource that had a Left Join. And it worked.

So....you can delete the child records in the OnDelete event....if that causes
problems then use the AfterDelete event.
