hi all
when a user of my database tries to add a film that is over 250mins, the user is alerted by a msgbox (this is what i want to happen) it asks them if this is correct. however if they press cancel on the msgbox i get the unfriendly access message (an error has been encountered etc etc) how can i change this to something more user friendly?
code for this cmd button is attached
Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim mbxResult As VbMsgBoxResult

If Me.txtFilmLengthMinutes.Value > 250 Then
mbxResult = MsgBox("Film Length is over " & "250 minutes. Is this correct?", _
vbQuestion + vbOKCancel)
End If

If mbxResult = vbCancel Then
Cancel = True

End If
End Sub
