Put the following code into the forms BeforeDelConfirm event
    dim txtResponse as string
    txtResponse = MsgBox("Are You Sure?", vbYesNo, "Deleting Record")
    If txtResponse = vbYes Then Response = vbYes Else Cancel = True

Or if you are wanting to do it in a field on a KeyDown (or similar) event use the following
    Dim txtresponse As String
    If KeyCode = vbKeyDelete Then
        txtresponse = MsgBox("Are You Sure?", vbYesNo, "Deleting Record")
        If txtresponse = vbYes Then DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord
    End If
