I have a button on my form (created by the wizard) which closes the form.  In the close event of the form the user has the option to cancel the close.  How do I stop access displaying a message advising the user that the docmd action had been cancelled ?  I have tried docmd.setwarnings false but this does not work !!

The code that I use in my form is:

Private Sub Comando0_Click()
  On Error Resume Next
        DoCmd.Close
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
  If (vbYes = MsgBox("exit?", vbYesNo)) Then
    Cancel = False
  Else
    Cancel = True
  End If
End Sub

' ---  Comando is the close's button

It's woks, well. But I thing the solution is for cekman.

Try inserting the following code:

sub MyCloseButton_Click()

dim answer as integer

'The vbYesNo doesn't apply to Access 2.0 search help
'on msgbox...
answer = msgbox = "Do you want to exit?",vbYesNo (*)
if answer = vbYes then
    Docmd close
endif

exit sub

Hope it helps,

Oh yeah, you'll have to remove the message from the close event.
Could you tell me what's in the close event? Maybe you can remove the whole thing.

Hope it helps,
