i am trying to delete the current record on my form using the following code
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 8, , acMenuVer70
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 6, , acMenuVer70

I tried putting the code into a combo box event but it doesn't work.  When i use a command button with the code in the click event it works just fine.

Use this:

DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdDeleteRecord

Those commands above are 13 year old deprecated commands.

I'm AMAZED that the so called Wizard still generates 13 year old deprecated code!
