Hi

I am using Access 2010 (continuous form)

What is the best way to catch a record change (record was pre-existing).

I would like to trap only events where the existing record actually  changed in some way.

Thanks

The On Dirty event  gets triggered even if the user exits without changing the data.  For example,  if the user hits the escape key or undo button,  the OnDirty event still triggers.

Use the Form Dirty event.  This event will trigger as soon as any Bound control value is changed in either a New or existing record.

Actually it doesn't.  If this is, then something is wrong ... something else is going on.
