I have a subform that can only be changed once a button on the main form is clicked.  Then when the user exits the subform I have a prompt.  I searched EE for a prompt and found this one.  This is my code OnExit:

If MsgBox("Do you want to save? (click 'No' to undo)", vbYesNo, "Save") = vbYes Then
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
Else
Me.Undo
End If
     
     Me.lbxParent.SetFocus
     Me.frmParentDetails.Locked = True
     Me.Command27.Enabled = True
    Me.frmParentDetails.Form!Status.Enabled = False
    Me.frmParentDetails.Form!AccountOwner.Enabled = False
    Me.frmParentDetails.Form!AccountLead.Enabled = False

It asks me if I want to save it and when I click no, it changes focus and keeps the changes.  I want to avoid a temp table.

are the data you are saving/discarding are those that are in the subform?

If MsgBox("Do you want to save? (click 'No' to undo)", vbYesNo, "Save") = vbYes Then
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
Else
'Me.Undo

Me.frmParentDetails.undo
'or

'Me.frmParentDetails.form.undo
End If

The data is on the subform.  Which one should I use.  Me.frmParentDetails.undo doesn't work.  Me.frmParentDetails.form.undo saves when Yes but doesn't cancel changes.

I think it keeps any changes because I am exiting the subform.  Does Undo work when exiting?

you can use the Beforeupdate event or beforeinsert to make the undo work

I get runtime error 2115 - 'the function set to the BeforeUpdate property for this field is preventing Access from saving the data...'

I made an addition to handle the error.  Here's the code now:

On Error Resume Next
DoCmd.Hourglass (True)
DoCmd.SetWarnings False
     
If MsgBox("Do you want to save? (click 'No' to undo)", vbYesNo, "Save") = vbYes Then
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acRecordsMenu, acSaveRecord, , acMenuVer70
Else
Me.Undo

'Me.frmParentDetails.Undo

'Me.frmParentDetails.Form.Undo

End If

DoCmd.SetWarnings True
DoCmd.Hourglass (False)
