I have a form called frmMealDailyEntry. I have a public function myjobfun that records the job function of the individual logging into the db. If an RN logs into the db and opens the form frmMealDailyEntry I want them to be required to enter the MealsDeliv control to be updated to a numeric value. The form should not close withoout this number being entered. The default value is currently set to "***" I would think on close event should be something like if myjobfun="RN" and me.MealsDeliv="***" then docmd. msgbox("MealsDeliv must be entered") then docmd.goto control("MealsDeliv") cancel close. I am not sure how to cancel the close. Thanks for the help.
