I have a routine that does a fair amount of work on a table. I need a general error trap in case it encounters an unexpected error, however in just one small section of code I need to have it ignore a .Update command if the error code is 3022 (duplicate key) and just abandon the .Update. Can anyone tell me how to do it?


with MyTable
    !Value = "My Value"
    !Value2 = "My Other Value"
    .Update    'only in this step of the code, abandon the update if the record has already been added
End With
