I have a main form with a close button that has code that tests for the unintended exit of the app.  This works fine.  Any attempt to put similar code in the form unload event does not work.  Users sometimes mistakenly hit the close control on the main menu.  Is there a way to catch that and cancel the closing of MS Access?  Thanks

You can't cancel the close event but you can cancel the unload event, so you can put this in your unload event and it will prompt you when closing.


Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)

    If MsgBox("Test", vbYesNo + vbExclamation, "Confirm close") <> vbYes Then
         Cancel = True
    End If

End Sub
