I have an MS Access 2003 MDB file I am now using in Access 2010.

I have several forms.  When the user leaves the form, I would like access to ask if the user wants to save changes or discard them.

In the Options-->Client Settings--> Confirm, the Record Changes is Checked.

Currently chagnes are saved, but NO confirmation.

Thanks.

The setting you refer to will only affect bulk update queries.

To do what you are asking, you can use code on the BeforeUpdate event of the form:

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)
Dim bytSave As Byte
bytSave = MsgBox("Save Changes?", vbYesNo + vbQuestion)
If bytSave = vbNo Then
    Cancel = True
    Me.Undo
    Exit Sub
End If
   
End Sub
