It is the InputBox you are looking for, not MessageBox.

Just remember, that if the user cancels the InputBox, it will return a zero-length string: ""

So your code should check that condition before proceeding or before passing the value to RS![Class] ... except, of course if this acceptable. However, if the field can be empty, this will usually be Null, which means that if no name is given, a Null should be passed to RS![Class]:

  RS![Class] = IIf(strInput = "", Null, strInput)

How can i get it to exit sub if the user cancels the inputbox?

Dim RS   As Recordset
Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("PscTable", dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)
RS.AddNew
RS![OldItem] = Item.Value
RS![Date] = Format(Now(), "mm/dd/yyyy")
RS![Class] = InputBox("Please Describe Admin Function:", "Additional Info Needed")
RS![Employee] = LogIn.Value
'RS![EmpId] = "201"
RS![TotalHours] = ReadIniFile("H:\Generald\GDB.ini", "Contact Values", "AdminFunction", "")
RS![MonthHidden] = Format(Now(), "mm")
RS![DayHidden] = Format(Now(), "dd")
RS![YearHidden] = Format(Now(), "yyyy")
RS.Update
RS.Close
Set RS = Nothing
        'End Write times
MsgBox " Admin Function was logged Successfully", vkokonly, "Activity System"

Something like:

Dim RS   As Recordset
Dim strInput As String

Set RS = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("PscTable", dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)
strInput = InputBox("Please Describe Admin Function:", "Additional Info Needed")
If strInput = "" Then
    ' Skip adding record.
    MsgBox " Admin Function was not logged.", vkokonly, "Activity System"
Else
    RS.AddNew
    ' ....
    RS![Class] = strInput
...
