that says, "can't perform DeleteRecord at this time..."  Why not?


What is the method for deleting the current record on a form using Recordset Method?

There are a number of different methods, but most other ones involve requerying the form. Are you able to manually delete the record by selecting it and then deleting, and does the code work in a command button on the form?
