MsgBox loop

I am looping thru a recordset and updating based upon record flag checkbox.  I have a message box confirming prior to the update but it fires for every record that will be updated.  

Question:  Is there a way to code the message so that it will only fire once (for the group of records to be updated)?

Place your message box statement before the loop (something like this)...

If MsgBox("Do You Want to Update These Records?, vbYesNo) = vbYes  Then
    Do until rs.EOF
          ....
          ...
     Loop
End if
'Your other code here


If the loop is all that is left in the procedure, you can get by without a block If statement and simplify it to:


If MsgBox("Do You Want to Update These Records?, vbYesNo) = vbNo  Then Exit Sub '** or exit function
Do until rs.EOF
          ....
          ...
Loop
End Sub
