MS Access: Disable Auto-Update of Form except by Command Button

Hello,

I have a simple form that displays the contents of a table ( via bound control ).

I also have a command button, caption: Update.

I would like to disable/intercept the Auto-Update feature of the form to ONLY update when the user presses the update button.  I do not want the record updated when the user closes or moves to another record within the form (table).

I have looked for several days for the solution and it is either too simple or seldom requested.

If there is a different approach to accomplish the same thing, then please feel free to suggest.

Thank you,

codeman

Personally for this I typically use an unbound form.  Choose a record from your form and click "edit" and it pops up an edit form for that record only.  From there I use a submit button which processes the changes.
