Turnoff Access's "Not in List" warning

I have setup the event for NotInList to my own Msgbox, but how do i make Access's warning about the "Text you entered in not an item in the list" to go away.  I tried to put in warnings = false before my msgbox and then true after ... but that did nothing.

The NotInList event has a parameter of Response and by setting this in the procedure access will either

Taken from the Access 2000 help file

Response = acDataErrDisplay '(Default) Displays the default message to the user. You can use this when you don't want to allow the user to add a new value to the combo box list.

Response = acDataErrContinue 'Doesn't display the default message to the user. You can use this when you want to display a custom message to the user. For example, the event procedure could display a custom dialog box asking if the user wanted to save the new entry. If the response is Yes, the event procedure would add the new entry to the list and set the Response argument to acDataErrAdded. If the response is No, the event procedure would set the Response argument to acDataErrContinue.

Response = acDataErrAdded  'Doesn't display a message to the user but enables you to add the entry to the combo box list in the NotInList event procedure. After the entry is added, Microsoft Access updates the list by requerying the combo box. Microsoft Access then rechecks the string against the combo box list, and saves the value in the NewData argument in the field the combo box is bound to. If the string is not in the list, then Microsoft Access displays an error message.

Change following code a little, and paste it under your Combo Event : [On Not in List]

Dim ctl As Control
Set ctl = Me!Combo5 'Change the name here
        Response = acDataErrContinue
        ctl.Undo


it will do it for you

Hi there,

The correct command to control the setwarnings is:

docmd.setwarnings False

....Your code that you want to ignore warnings from.

docmd.setwarnings true

and NOT docmd.setwarnings=false or =true

Hope this helps.

I think you should split them as my answer also works to halt the warnings.
