Access Form to check for duplicate values in a table during data entry

I have an Access table called WO and a field within that table called LOT#.  The LOT# field is a text field with indexing enable but will allow duplicate entries.  I have built a data entry form called WO_Form and I would like a popup that alerts the user they have entered a duplicate entry into the LOT# field.  Duplicate entries are ok in the LOT# field but I just want the user to be alerted of the issue.
