I have the following coding in a Access 2007 form with Sub Forms.  I have a find button that on click the
coding finds the record in the database.  However, I need a messag box to appear when find is selected and no records are found.  Where do I put this and what coding do I use?  

Private Sub Command9_Click()

Dim rs As Object

Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
rs.FindFirst "[PK_DriverLicenseID] = '" & Me.Text10 & "'"
If Not rs.EOF Then
Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark


End If
End Sub

Private Sub Command9_Click()

Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

Set rs = Me.Recordset.Clone
rs.FindFirst "[PK_DriverLicenseID] = '" & Me.Text10 & "'"
If rs.NoMatch = True Then
    ' Not Found
    ExitSub
Else
    Me.Bookmark = rs.Bookmark
End If
End Sub

And we can simplify this also (and there was a typo above ... ExitSub - no space)

    With Me.Recordset.Clone
        .FindFirst "[PK_DriverLicenseID] = '" & Me.Text10 & "'"
        If .NoMatch = True Then
            ' Not Found - Do whatever
            Exit Sub
        Else
            Me.Bookmark = .Bookmark
        End If
    End With
