Hi

I have a simple Access form that is linked to a table.
The user can enter a new record simply by typing into the form as they would
into a table.
I need to do certain validation checks but am not sure where to put the code
Should it be in the before update event?
What code do I write to prevent the update occurring.
Thanks
