Hi

I am using access 2010

I would like to record the value of a data field just before a NEW record has been saved.
I tried the code below, but....


public strLastDataEntry

Private Sub Form_AfterUpdate()
     If Me.NewRecord = True Then
             strLastDataEntry = [myfield]
     End if
End sub

Move your code to the Before Update event. By the time you hit AfterUpdate, Me.NewRecord would not be True.
