MS Access help talks about a form event called RecordExit, but I can't find it on the form property sheet.

It's the event that never was :-)

Never heard of that one ... learn something new every day!! I'd assume you could use the Current event to do the same thing ... although I have no idea when, exactly, the RecordExit event would have fired.

What are you trying to do. Or just curious what it is.

I vaguely remember something about this ... probably read about it in a 'new features (Form) article in Smart Access and/or Advisor ... and they were probably reviewing the beta release, circa that time period.

"The RecordExit event was an event that existed during the Microsoft Access 2002 beta cycle, but it was removed in the final release version of Microsoft Access 2002. The sample applications used this event in the Employees form; however, the procedure was not removed from the sample applications after the event was removed from Microsoft Access. Note that the event procedure will not fire because the RecordExit event no longer exists in Microsoft Access."

Possible Use:

Private Sub Form_RecordExit(Cancel As Integer)
    ' Hide the errormsg label to reduce flashing when navigating
    ' between records.
    errormsg.Visible = False
End Sub

Yeah, I saw that article on the MS website, but no real info on what it was supposed to do, or why it was removed ... guess we'll never know!!
