First of all, the ControlSource shoull hav an Nz function in case the data is blank

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. 1.debit...control source=Nz([entry Subform].[Form]![Text12])
Secondly, you will make life much easier for yourself if you give the text boxes meaningful names.

Thirdly, I strongly advise against having spaces in form names or field names so we are now down to

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. 1.debit...control source=EntrySubform.Form!TxtDebit
Now to get to your question (at long last)

You need to check the balance before updating your form, so do your calculation for the balance as you indicate and then on the Before Update, try the following code

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
  3.    If Balance <> 0 then
  4.         Msgbox "The balance is: " & Format(Balance, "Currency")
  5.         Cancel = True
  6.    End If
