I have looked at this a bit, and the form that is giving you this problem, is meant to update or edit, a  record that is currently in the recordset, correct?

If so you are issue is that your code is just looking to see if the title matches any title already in the table.  When that is found to be true you are presented the the error message.  The problem is, you are editing a record that you know to be in the table, and there for should not be running this IF.  

Now I think you may want to check and make sure that they have not changed the title while they were editing the form, and I would warn them that changing the title will cause them to loose any changes that were made, or something to that effect.  I would also, check to ensure that the title is not blank, before you allow them to proceed to the next form.

So long story short, you do not need this code here, as the title is being carried over form the first form, and you will get a true return on your IF statement every time.  I have commented it out and made some test edits to the data, and the forms all seem to work as they appear to be designed to.

If this is an existing record, then your DLookup will find the same record that you are editing.  You need to look for records with a matching title EXCLUDING the current record.
Does your table have a primary key?  Let's assume you have an autonumber PK named AHI_id.  You can then use this code:
If Nz(DLookup("AHATitle", "3-tblAHA_VER1", "AHATitle='" & Me.AHATitle & "'"), 0) <> Me.AHI_id Then

Make a note, this message means that it cannot find that Field or control.
So substitute it with the name of the field that actually holds this ID

@cssc1:
Note that I said: <<Let's assume you have an autonumber PK named AHI_id.>>
Does your table have such a primary key field?  If not, then of course the code will not work.
Make sure that the field name in your code matches the name of the primary key in your table (note that it appears twice in that line) and also that it is included in the RecordSource of your form.
