Also, when you're validating the txtUnitPrice, you're setting the txtTotal field by doing a calculation.  The problem is that the txtQuantity field hasn't yet been populated when this validation fires off, so your result will always be zero.

When the txtTotal field is set to zero you have the txtTotal_Change event firing off (from the txtUnitPrice_Validate event), which invokes an error giving a type mismatch.

You need to clean this up as well.

You're only showing one Update in cmdAddOrder_Click, and even that is not handled if the If statement isn't true.

You're doing a second AddNew when the first one may not be resolved.

If it's all the same table do one AddNew, then validate your fields, then perform the Update.

I've also noticed that your datProducts data object on the frmOrders form has a different path to the db than the other data objects on the form.  It's pointing to the C:\Windows Desktop\Future School\Program Code\FSDBase.mdb, whereas the others are pointing to C:\Future School\Program Code\FSDBase.mdb.
