I have a continuous form where I have multiple fields to update or create new records.

The afterUpdate event works when I modify the "txtNo" field, but when I create a new record and add value to "txtNo" the afterUpdate event doesn't work.
Which even works for both, update a record or add a new record?

Private Sub txtNo_AfterUpdate()

     If Not IsNull(Me.txtNo) And Not IsNull(Me.txtDirection) Then
        Me.txtCleForm = Me.txtNo & "-" & Me.txtDirectionID
        Me.txtCleFormS = Me.txtNo & "-" & Me.txtDirectionLien
     End if

End Sub

Thanks,
Carol

AfterUpdate works for both New and Existing records. I use it all the time.

Are you SURE the event isn't firing? Place a breakpoint in the "Private sub" line and see if your code takes you there.

Thanks, your right. It was a codification issue.
