Form error: "Update or CancelUpdate..." etc.

P: n/a
I have a multiple-page form for entering info about a project with several
sub-forms for sub-projects, notes and tasks. The form and one of the
sub-forms each have a combo box to select a record to display, as well as
a "last date/time updated" type of field that populates AfterUpdate.

What can I do to fix the "Update or CancelUpdate without AddNew or Edit"
error? I'm pretty unschooled in code but I have gotten by with macros and
cut-and-paste so far. :)

Thanks!

bad as mine the links in my post there may help you.

Move the code that populates "last date/time updated" to the
BeforeUpdate event.
