How make message box popup if certain criteria exists in a query

I have a form which has a field named txtPart_No.  When the user has made an entry in this textbox I want a message box to appear IF certain criteria exists.  First of all a query has to run that looks like the attachment.  The query is named "qryScrapPercentForLastThreeOrders"

Then IF any one of the records in the query has a "Scrap Percentage" that is 10.0% or greater, make the message box appear.

But the message box has to give the user the choice to either print a report (yet to be designed), or close the message box and proceed.

I don't know how to code the afterupdate event of the field txtPart_No

Something like:
if DMax("ScrapPercentage","qryScrapPercentForLastThreeOrders") >= .1 then
    if messagebox("Do You want to proceed?", vbYesNo") = vbNo Then
        Cancel = true
        Exit Sub
    else
        proceed...
end if

It worked but I had to change it slightly to:

    If DMax("ScrapPercent", "qryScrapPercentForLastThreeOrders") >= 0.1 Then
        If MsgBox("Do You want to proceed?", vbYesNo) = vbNo Then
        Cancel = True
        Exit Sub
        Else
        MsgBox "report goes here"
        End If
    End If

Now I'm going to post another question title, "Another message box criteria question" which is very similar to this one.  The difference is in the 2nd paragraph.
