No Save message display when closing the form

P: 14
When I create a new record, if I click on close, the window just close and no message appears asking if I want to save this record. Is there a way to force a message appear if user close the form? Thanks for any help. Michelle

you can put the following code in the before update event for your form.

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim result As Integer

result = MsgBox("Do You Want to Save the Changes?", vbYesNo)

If result = 7 Then
End If

End Sub

Go to Tools / Options / Edit/Find / Confirm to see what you want to choose confirmations for.
These can be disabled and reenabled in VBA using
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Call DoCmd.SetWarnings(False)
  2. and
  3. Call DoCmd.SetWarnings(True)
