Form with a subform - rollback changes

I have a form with a subform and buttons "Ok" and "Cancel". "Ok" button behaviour is obvious. But when the user enters the subform, Access saves the record from the main form. Is there any way to organize rolling back without using temporary tables or arrays ?

I'm assuming these are bound forms. I don't know of any way, other than temporary tables, to do this with bound forms. With unbound forms, you can create a WorkSpace object and do a BeginTrans and then either a CommitTrans or a Rollback at appropriate points.

No way with bound forms. Access commits the changes when it saves. If you need to do this, you must use unbound forms or temporary tables.
