Revised Comments without Deleting existing Comment data

I need help with the attached code to prevent duplicate entry of data within a Comment field(Memo).  I need to validate if certain data exists within the Comments, if so only modify the necessary data and not duplicate the data.

The problem I am having in my code is with the replacement of the field("REQ EMO") data within the comment field, it is currently duplicate the data instead of updating it.  See the attached image for illustrating my point.

See  '>>>>>>>>>>> in code for problem area.

see previous post:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Access_Coding-Macros/Q_24422385.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+byval+instr+spad+variant

Thanks,

Karen

You should know the drill by now...
;-)

Without a sample DB, ..."Figuring out" what is in your DB will be difficult, ...agreed?


Sample database notes:
1. Back up your database(s).
2. Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
3. Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
4. Remove any records unless they are relevant to the issue.
5. Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
6. Remove any references to any "linked" files (files outside of the database, Images, OLE Files, ...etc)
7. Remove any references to any third party Active-x Controls (unless they are relevant to the issue)
8. Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
9. Compile the code. (From the VBA code window, click: Debug-->Compile)
10. Run the compact/Repair utility.
11. Remove any Passwords and/or security.
12. If a form is involved in the issue, set the Modal and Popup properties to: No
    (Again, unless these properties are associated with the issue)
13. Post the explicit steps to replicate the issue.
14. Test the database before posting.

In other words, ...post a database that we can easily open and immediately see and/or troubleshoot the issue.
And if applicable, also include a clear graphical representation of the *Exact* results you are expecting, based on the sample data.

At least with a sample, you stand a chance...
