Continuous Forms - Before Update

Hi,

I have a continuous form.
I want to add a bit of code attached "before the update" of any individual DETAIL line of the form.

However, access does not seem to offer much flexibility in the "EVENT" tab.    Only, On Click, Double click, Mouse Down, Mouse up etc are offered.     There is no "Before Update" option  available - presumably because it is a continuous form.

How can get a "Before Update" option??
