I am creating a database using MS Access 2003.  I created a data entry form with several command buttons.  I am having an issue with the "Cancel and Close" button.  What I want is even if someone has entered data into the various list-boxes, text boxes, etc, I want this button to close the form, and not store any entered data in the table.  I have tried:

DoCmd.Close acForm, "<Form Name>", acSaveNo

But this still stores the data in the table...

- Have cmdCancel and cmdSave on your form.
- Remove the control source of all the controls you have.
- When you hit cmdCancel, for is to close without saving a thing.
- When you hit cmdSave, using code like below saves your info:

CurrentDB.Execute "Insert Into Table1(CustName, Amount) Values(" & chr(34) & me!txtCustName & chr(34) & ", " & Me!txtSales & ")"

Values(" & chr(34) & me!txtCustName & chr(34) & ",    
is to handle cases like O'Brian     <----- has ' in it

If you would never have cases like O'Brian, then use:

CurrentDB.Execute "Insert Into Table1(CustName, Amount, SoldDate) Values('" & me!txtCustName & "', " & Me!txtSales & ", #" & me!txtDate & "#)"

Ok, so say I have four main fields: Section, Title, Applicability, and Description
Section is a number, Description is a memo, and the other two are just text
In the VBA for the "Save", this is the line I have, and it doesn't like it:

CurrentDb.Execute "Insert Into AS9100-B Requirements(Section, Title, Applicability, Description) Values(" & Me!txtSection & ", " & Me!txtTitle & ", " & Me!txtApplicability & ", " & Me!txtDescription & ")"

I'm not overly familiar with VBA, so I very well may be doing something stupid.  But in some of the code you gave me you have # signs and single quotes.  Not sure if I should include those or not?
Also, do drop-down lists, or field type affect the entry into the table using this code?

Thanks for your help
