OldValue

Using Access 2002

Is it possible to use the OldValue for a form?

Scenerio:  I have a command button:  "Clear and Cancel All Edits" on a subform.

They want to be able to clear all edits on that subform that they just made and have all the fields go back to their original value.  I have many bound fields on this form, so I really would like to find code that I won't have to list all of them and use the OldValue command.  So I am hoping it can be done with the form in general...or something along those lines...unless someone has a better idea.

From the Access 97 help file:

   Dim ctlC As Control

   ' For each control.
      For Each ctlC in Me.Controls
         If ctlC.ControlType = acTextBox Then
            ' Restore Old Value.
            ctlC.Value = ctlC.OldValue
         End If
   Next ctlC

This resets all textboxes. Steve's Me.Undo is a much better option though.
