Runtime Error 3421 in Access 2007

My code saves the value from a textbox, but when there is no value, I want it to overwrite the value in the table (formatted as Long, no required value, and no index).  I tried the following 3 options:

1) If AEN.Value <> "" Then rs.AEN = AE.Value Else rs.[AE] = Null
2) If AEN.Value <> "" Then rs.AEN = AE.Value Else rs.[AE] = vbNull
3) If AEN.Value <> "" Then rs.AEN = AE.Value Else rs.[AE] = Nothing

Out of all 3 options, no error occur, but when I load the value back from the table into the textbox, the value '1' appears (in the textbot and in the record).  How can I modify my recordset statement to overwrite the current value in the record with nothing?

Try
If AEN.Value <> "" Then rs.AEN = AE.Value Else rs.[AE] = Empty

Open in new window

If the textbox is bound to the same table that is the source for your recordset, then I believe you will need to refresh the form so that the value from the table (that we just updated through the recordset)  will display. And as you stated, if there is no value then nothing will display.

It still returns the value '1'.
