hi

I have a subform and have set AllowDeletions = No on both the parent form and sub form.

If I try to delete a record with the Menu or right mouse click it does not allow (so far so good) but if I select an entire record(s) and use the keyboard Delete key then the record(s) DO get deleted. what gives, I thought that would be disabled too??

That should not be happening.  Something else is going on ...

Can you upload the db (sanitized) ?

first set the key preview event of the subform to yes

use this code in the keydown event of the subform

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If KeyCode = 46 Then
    KeyCode = 0
End If
End Sub

Open in new window


or this

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
If KeyCode = vbKeyDelete Then
    KeyCode = 0
End If
End Sub

Open in new window
