How to stop code after data is entered

I have the code below. It does what I need it to do, but I don't want to allow the user to click twice as it would change the results. I need a sort of a run once thing as long as that window is open.
How can I get the code to stop and not allow it to run if results are already in the textticketfield(29)

Private Sub cmdGift_Click()

 txtticketfields(29).Text = FormatCurrency(CCur(txtcustomerfields(17).Text) - CCur(txtticketfields(20))) + CCur(txtticketfields(19))
   
  txtcustomerfields(17).Text = CCur(txtticketfields(29))

End Sub

static alreadyRun as boolean

Thanks for the help,
Just one question though, if I wanted to reverse it say on the change of a tab screen SSTab1=0 how would I undo this without having to close down the screen.

I guess you'll need a global variable:
---------------------------------------------------

private alreadyRun as boolean

Private Sub ResetAlreadyRun()
    alreadyRun = false
End Sub

Private Sub cmdGift_Click()
   if not alreadyRun then
      txtticketfields(29).Text = FormatCurrency(CCur(txtcustomerfields(17).Text) - CCur(txtticketfields(20))) + CCur(txtticketfields(19))
      txtcustomerfields(17).Text = CCur(txtticketfields(29))
      alreadyRun =true
   end if
End Sub
