I have created a form (see attached) where the user can input data from a spreadsheet into the appropriate table based on the option button selected.

The problem I am facing is that when the user selects any of the option buttons and does the import for the first time, it works fine. However, when they try to do it again with a different button, the error, "The Data Has Been Changed, Another User Edited This Record...".

It still works, but I do not want this message to keep popping up and am not sure how to resolve it.

Without seeing your code it's hard to provide suggestions, but in general it's a good idea to do this before those types of operation:

If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False

This forces Access to save any changes, which can sometimes avoid that error.

You'll also get this error if you're trying to manipulate data in the records that are on the form, if those are dirty. In general you should either (a) perform all data manipulations in code or (b) perform all data manipulations through the form.

But again, without seeing the code it's hard to advise ....

You use the forms OnError event to check the errors and respond.

Two variables are passed in by Access; ErrNum and response.

Errnum is the error that the form encountered.

You set Response to tell Access what to do, which is either act normally (pop up a error message) or just continue (you will put up your own message).

I am attaching two files. One is the form that has the option buttons and the other is the code in the module that it calls.

Hard to say.  Open the form and in the OnError event, place a STOP.

Then give it a go.   If you hit the stop, then the error is occuring in the form.

 If not, then it's in either one of your GetData... procedures or GetDataFromSpreadsheet().   Without any error handling (which you should add), there's no way to tell.

With your help, I managed to stop the error from popping up. On the "On Error" event of the form, I inserted the following code:

If DataErr = 7878 Then
        Me.Dirty = False
        Response = acDataErrContinue
End If
